The dogs are cartoon characters -- based on real Sheriff's Office canine deputies Mik and Nero -- and they appear in five action-packed crime-prevention comic and activity books.
The free "Mik & Nero" comics are also headed to libraries in Clackamas County. Canby, Estacada, Gladstone, Hoodland, Lake Oswego, Milwaukie, Molalla, Oregon City, Sandy, West Linn Wilsonville, Oak Grove and Clackamas Corner libraries are delighted to make the comics and activity books available to parents and children.
An appearance by Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts; Sheriff's Office K9 "Nero" and his handler, Deputy Bradley O'Neil; and K9 "Wodon" and his handler, Sgt. Paul Coleman.
A demonstration of "Safety Street" -- Clackamas Safe Communities' hugely popular pedal-car driving course for kids 8 years and under. One of the "Mik & Nero" comics, "Safety Street!," is based on this popular fixture at the Clackamas County Fair.
