London Police Service Const. JasonWong has some serious moves.

He's the skateboarding cop promoting helmet safety in the Forest City this summer.

The police department there recently released a public service announcement featuring Wong kickin' it, walkin' it and flippin' it in an effort to get kids to wear their helmets when they skate or bike.

In the one-minute, 48-second YouTube video, Wong, who is the department's school safety officer, puts on a show for the first 30 seconds. Then, his partner, Const. Becky Elliott, explains how to properly wear a helmet, with Wong playfully demonstrating the 2 v. 1 rule:

  • Two fingers should be able to fit between your eyebrow and helmet.
  • The straps form a V around your ear.
  • You should be able to put one finger between the strap and your chin.

And then comes the real treat, free Frosters from Mac's Convenience for every kid London police find properly wearing their helmet on bike paths and at skate parks across the city.
