(SALEM, Ore. ) - The Salem Police Department lost a loyal and valuable member of the team on Friday.

Mick, a 14-year-old Chocolate Labrador Retriever that worked narcotics detection for five years, first with handler George Finch, then on the streets with Officer Kris Knox.

Mick joined the department in 1995 with the help of the community, including several schools that sold Hershey Kisses in a campaign called "Kisses for Mick."

Funds raised in that campaign assisted the Salem Police Department in purchasing and training Mick to be an outstanding narcotics detection asset.

Mick assisted in detecting narcotics while on patrol, during search warrants, at the Department of Corrections, at the Marion County Jail and in numerous surrounding jurisdictions.

Mick was a very playful dog with an outgoing demeanor and friendly disposition and was frequently called on by our community do demonstrations at schools and service organizations.

Mick was an excellent ambassador for our agency and he will be greatly missed.
