Police sergeant’s career deserves kudos and a voodoo doll

Lucky Voodoo Doll honors 31 years of Tucson police service

Lucky Voodoo Doll honors 31 years of Tucson police service

Tucson will miss Sgt. Mark Robinson. At least much of Tucson will.

I recall hearing one reporter complain he was sometimes grumpy, but most people would be after a 31-year police career.

Robinson held a number of positions at the Tucson Police Department.

He worked as a patrol officer, traffic sergeant, burglary investigator and in surveillance, according to a report at KVOA.com.

I’m guessing one of his favorites was his time in the motorcycle unit.

Robinson finished off his decades of service with a finale in the Public Information Office, where I got to know him as my gig as a night cops reporter.

He was cool enough to earn a parting gift. I made him a Lucky Voodoo Doll.

Only one other police officer has thus far merited a Lucky Voodoo Doll. Lt. Decio Hopffer got one for his promotion.

It’s just a little way to thanks for making our community better.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
