Kansas City Cop Starts a Dance-Off With Kids

Aug 14, 2014

Out of Kansas City, Missouri, comes a video of a police officer busting a move with some of the local kids in an eastern Kansas City neighborhood. NBC News affiliate KSHB reports that after officer Jeffrey Krebs spent Sunday morning dancing in his patrol car, his partner offered Jolly Rancher candy to some kids in the neighborhood if they would throw down their best moves in a dance-off with the officer.

The kids and Krebs delivered, each offering up some moves, including one Krebs dubbed "The Octopus" (which the unseen camera operator reacts to with a quiet "Oof.")

Krebs told KSHB he hopes the friendly competition will help him work better with the community in the long run: "I feel like if we build rapport with them, then they’re more likely to call us when they need us."
