Chief Andrew H. Burt

Chief Andrew H. Burt was murdered by a deranged man in downtown Salt Lake City. Accompanied by the city water master, the 54-year-old victim was searching for a suspect who had earlier threatened the life of a local merchant.

The city water master was also wounded but managed to disarm the suspect, who was immediately captured. Chief Burt was married and the father of a large number of children. He is buried in the Salt Lake City Cemetery. Learn more about Chief Burt and all of Salt Lake City Police Department’s fallen officers at www.slcpd.com.
