We report the first measurement of the midrapidity inclusive jet and dijet longitudinal double-spin asymmetry ALL in polarized proton-proton collisions at center-of-mass energy sqrt{s} = 510 GeV. The inclusive jet ALL measurement provides sensitivity to the gluon helicity distribution down to a Bjorken-x of 0.02, while the dijet measurements, binned in four jet-pair topologies, will allow for tighter constraints on the x dependence. Both results are consistent with previous measurements made at sqrt{s}= 200 GeV and show excellent agreement with predictions from recent next-to-leading order global analyses.
