The Burnett County Sheriff’s Office would like to introduce our second K-9 “Croix.” Croix came to us from Slovakia. He is a one year old German Shepherd. He is a very big dog that has a calm demeanor.

Croix and his handler Deputy Bailey Mangen will be attending intensive training for 10 weeks. That training will involve narcotics detection, apprehension, article searches and search and rescue.

We would like to thank the Burnett County Law Enforcement Citizen’s Auxiliary for their continuous fundraising efforts and thank you to all of the generous donors. Your support has made this possible.

Croix is our newest family member and we are very excited to see him get to work. Please welcome Croix!
