Battle of the Badges trophy goes to police

Representatives from the Logan County Board of Developmental Disabilities presented a traveling trophy Thursday to officers of the Bellefontaine Police Department following the Battle of the Badges Blood Drive earlier this month.


For the contest, blood donors voted for their favorite department between the Bellefontaine Police Department, Bellefontaine Fire Department, and Logan County Sheriff’s Office.

The LCBDD hosts another Battle of the Badges Blood Drive from noon to 4 p.m. March 14 at the Discovery Center, 1973 W. State Route 47.

The blood drive is conducted by the Community Blood Center, which supplies 24 area hospitals with blood donated by local donors, including Mary Rutan Hospital.

Donors will receive a green shamrock T-shirt, and juice and refreshments will be provided.
