Our Public Information Unit intern Trevor McCullough made this trailer for our "Mik & Nero" series of grant-funded crime-prevention comics and activity books for kids. To read the entire series online, visit http://www.clackamas.us/sheriff/kids/
K-9 deputies "Mik & Nero" teach kids about road safety, saying "no" to abuse, and the dangers of drugs and drinking and driving.
The dogs are cartoon characters -- based on real Sheriff's Office canine deputies Mik and Nero -- and they appear in seven action-packed crime-prevention comic and activity books.
"Mik & Nero" comics are available online at http://www.clackamas.us/sheriff/kids/ and in print at at Clackamas County Libraries and the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Brooks Building (9101 SE Sunnybrook Blvd., Clackamas) and the Public Safety Training Center (12700 SE 82nd Avenue, Clackamas).
MEET THE REAL MIK AND NERO
The real Mik and Nero have enjoyed real-life exploits worthy of their cartoon adventures.
Nero is a four-year-old Shepherd/Malanois mix. He was born in March 2005 and raised in the Czech Republic. The Sheriff's Office purchased Nero from Adlerhorst International in Riverside, CA in November 2006, when the dog was only 18 months old.
Mik and Nero went through the same basic 240-hour K9 training course together in the winter of 2007. After graduation, Nero was assigned to work the swing shift with Deputy Bradley O'Neil. Nero can't wait to go to work each night, and prefers working in the dark. When Nero is on patrol, he tracks suspects who run from crime scenes and finds articles suspects try to hide while fleeing. When Nero is relaxing off-duty, he loves to play with a weighted exercise ball in the backyard of his Clackamas home.
Mik was a Belgian Malanois, born in April 2003. He passed away in 2010. He was raised as a sporting dog in Holland, and was chosen and purchased by the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office in November 2006.
"We can't think of a better way to honor Mik's service than by letting him live on in these comics," said Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts.
