O - Officer Burnett + Quotes




Officer Burnett is a good guy who only wants to do good. He knows that officers aren’t always popular among the people, especially with Donovan whose brother (an Internal Affairs Investigator) was murdered by corrupt cops, but that doesn’t stop him from doing whatever he needs to do to serve and protect. Including becoming an ally to Donovan. He’s one of the few cops Donovan learns to trust in Seismic Crimes.

Officer Burnett is kind, easy going, and has a big heart. Here’s a few snippets of conversations featuring Burnett.

Quote #1:

“I’m Officer Burnett and I’m just trying to get the facts. Two of our men called in a murder of an Internal Affairs investigator and cited you as the suspect they saw at the murder scene. Then you fled from them. Now you’re here, and you’re telling us you and the woman out there killed one of our men in self-defense. You’re lucky we didn’t stun you on sight. Why don’t you tell us everything from the beginning? You said your brother called you. Why don’t you start from there?”

Quote #2:

Burnett held the door open for her. Donovan stood and she went to him, needing contact with him. He hooked his arms around her and pulled her into his body. She closed her eyes, thinking about how close he had come to being charged with murder.

They may not know each other well, but already, she couldn’t imagine her life without him.

After a moment, a throat cleared. “Seems like the two of you are pretty close.”

Beth peeked up at Donovan’s grin. “Natural disasters can bring people together,” he told Burnett.

“They sure can.”

  14. I can picture Officer Burnett easily. One of the cuddly nice cops in crime drama - loyal, has integrity, without very big ambitions, but definitely the partner you'd want because you know you can depend on him.

  17. He sounds like a great character. Do you interview cops before or during the writing process? Or go it alone?
