Police Department Giving Back to Burnsville Community During
3rd-Annual '12 Days of Christmas'
In the spirit of the season, Burnsville’s police officers union will be providing special gift bags to local families in need during the third-annual “12 Days of Christmas – Giving Back to Burnsville” event.
Since its inception in 2015, officers have raised several thousand dollars in donations – both from within the department and from local businesses – for the “12 Days of Christmas” event. These funds are used to purchase gift cards and other items to brighten the holiday season for members of the Burnsville community.
Officers will once again be distributing these gifts during their normal patrols from Dec. 12-23, and will document the event on Twitter - @BurnsvillePD.
The objective of this event is twofold – first, to help families of all beliefs and backgrounds in need – and second, to develop relationships between residents and the men and women in blue.
“Officers understand that contacts with police can be stressful, especially during critical times and around the holidays,” said Burnsville Police Captain Jef Behnken. “This is an opportunity for police officers and the public to connect in a positive way.”
The Burnsville Police Department would like to thank all of the officers and local businesses – Burnsville Lions Club, Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community, Shippers Resource Center, Anchor Bank, Cub Foods of Burnsville, and Dan Athmann of Thrivent Financial – who have made this event possible.
