MOGADORE, Ohio (AP) — A village police department in northeast Ohio has a new logo — designed by an 8-year-old boy.
A submission by third-grader Johnathan Ardelian was chosen as the new logo by the police chief in Mogadore, a village of about 3,800 people east of Akron.
The Akron Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/M98amW ) reports that the village's new chief, Todd Higgins, challenged kids at O.H. Somers Elementary School to come up the new look.
Jonathan submitted a drawing of an eagle soaring over the village's iconic Grist Mill, which was adapted for police uniform patches. The boy — who says he wants to be a police officer when he grows up — says it symbolizes officers' readiness to protect and serve the community.
Higgins presented the new design at the elementary school Monday.
