CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - A 5-year-old Akron boy was out helping his mom with yard work earlier this week.

That’s when an Akron police officer noticed the boy’s good citizenry and decided Josiah deserved some recognition, according to Department Facebook post.

Officer Heller stopped to thank Josiah and gave him a goody bag.

Josiah’s mom Julianne snapped a picture of the two that has been viewed almost 3,000 times.

It’s easy to see why.
