Police sergeant’s career deserves kudos and a voodoo dollby Ryn Gargulinski on May. 22, 2009, under Local, Special
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.
