'The World Needs Love': Second Grader Breaks The Mold With Bright And Cheerful Art Design For Police Car

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) - A second grader in Central Pennsylvania who helped design a police department's newest ride says she's hoping to bring some happiness to the streets.

Students at Yorkshire Elementary School got a sneak peak of the new Springettsbury Township police car on May 21.

Tuleya McGovern's brightly colored design was chosen from five finalists. Her message? The world needs love.

"The police car drives all around town and people could see it," McGovern tells CBS affiliate WHP.

"The timing couldn't be better," says Lt. Brian Wilbur of the Springettsbury Township Police Department. "The world does need some love and some grace and some understanding and what better message to have on the side of a police car to portray that."

The STPD hopes to make this an annual contest, rotating between its two school districts of York Suburban and Central York while helping to rotate its fleet of vehicles.
