September 7 Hometown Hero


The Hometown Hero for September 7th was chosen after being highlighted by the Anchorge Police Department as an SRO.

Officer Brian Burton is the School Resource Officer assigned to Chugiak High School, Mirror Lake Middle School, Birchwood, Eagle River, Chugiak elementary, and Fire Lake.

Burton was born in Germany and transplanted to Alaska in the mid-‘70s.

He has been with APD for 24 years and an SRO for eight years. He spends most of this free time enjoying our beautiful state by fishing, camping, hunting, and riding his ATV. Burton’s all-time favorite food is tacos!

He is excited to kick off this school year and is thrilled to see both the familiar and new faces of students as they return to the classrooms.
