The career of Marion Police Department K9 officer Lt. Six was celebrated during a retirement party held Tuesday, June 21, 2022. In retirement, Six will live with his handler Lt. Mark Elliott and his family. Joining Six and Lt. Elliott for this photo were Lt. Elliott's wife, Candy, and their daughters,  Morgan, Cassidy, and McKenna.

An iconic officer with the Marion Police Department was celebrated this week as he approaches retirement after nearly nine years on the force.

K9 officer Lt. Six has been a member of MPD since November 2013. The Dutch Shepherd began his career alongside Lt. Mark Elliott at the age of two and is the longest-serving K9 in the history of the department.

“Six has contributed in more ways than you can really count,” Marion Police Chief Jay McDonald said during a retirement party for Six held on Tuesday. “He obviously is an outstanding asset for the agency as far as the police work that he’s done, but I think what even goes beyond that is the work that he’s done in the community and helps officers have the ability to have an interaction with a citizen that might not normally occur.
