Grantsburg’s new PD chief will have a K9 sidekick

BCSO Deputy Mitchell Olson and canine officer Tracker will remain a team in Grantsburg’s Police force. 

Grantsburg’s new police chief is set to dig in in just a few weeks, and he’ll have a sidekick. Deputy Mitchell Olson, who currently works as a Burnett County Sheriff’s deputy, will be joining the village force in the coming weeks, as will his K9 officer ‘Tracker,’ who has been in service in Burnett County since June of 2017.

Olson is slated to start his new position later this month, as he winds down his time with the BCSO.
