Burnsville Police Department
Fundraising Goal Met for New Police K-9 
   K-9 Echo

Thanks to many generous donations, the public has helped the Burnsville Police Department achieve its goal of raising the funds needed to secure a new police K-9.

In July 2016, the department announced the upcoming retirement of K-9 Echo. Echo has served with his handler Ben Archambault since 2010.

With Echo preparing for retirement, the department began raising funds for the City’s next police K-9 (who will join the department’s other K-9 team of Rex and his handler Brian Hasselman).

Burnsville began its K-9 program in 1982. In the past 34 years, 13 four-legged officers have served the department. Four of those K-9s (including both Echo and Rex) were funded almost exclusively through public donations.

The Burnsville Police Department would like to extend a sincere “thank you” to the community for their continued support.
