Every year at Mardi Gras, we're reminded how good the NOPD is at managing huge crowds. And we also get to see that more than a few New Orleans cops have serious dance moves.

In the video above, an NOPD officer, identified by a reader as the one-and-only "Disco Cop" L.J. Smith, can't help but dance when the band passes by.

Want to dance like Smith? He gave our reporter Doug MacCash a dance lessons:

In 2015, the famous "wobble cop" showed that he could also dance the "Cupid Shuffle."

And in 2016, two cops danced with a crowd during the Orpheus parade.
