Local journalism has a responsibility… to serve its community. We accept that responsibility, and we carry it with honor. It’s no wonder a group of community members, residents and businesspeople came together to invest in this iconic print and digital publication. The new Beverly Hills Courier will be thorough and responsive to the needs of our extraordinary city, while representing the true “voice” of Beverly Hills and its surrounding areas.
The Beverly Hills Courier has been sold to a Beverly Hills-based investment group. The change of ownership took effect August 30.

The Courier is saddened to learn of the death of Beverly Hills Police Department K-9 Ecko, who was put to sleep last week after a short battle with cancer. Ecko was partners with BHPD officer David Rudy for seven-and-a-half years. They began partnering together when Ecko was just 18-months-old. He retired from the BHPD on April 1, at the age of 9. Ecko was a male Belgian malinois, which are a breed routinely used as police canines because of their high play drive and the unbreakable bond they form with their human partners. Ecko and Officer Rudy’s relationship began during a three-month basic training canine school, which focused on patrol work as well as explosives detection work. During his career, Ecko assisted the BHPD and other outside agencies in explosives detection sweeps and other operations. “We are greatful for all the years Ecko worked at BHPD and will miss him,” BHPD Chief Sandra Spagnoli said.
