Al Burns is one of the characters in the series Unforgettable. He is a Detective New York City Police Department. He is Carrie's partner and ex-boyfriend.



Al was Carrie's partner at the Syracuse Police Department. Al made Carrie his partner when Carrie's previous partner forced her to do all of the work while he took all of the credit.

When the investigation was shut down, Carrie resigned her position and left for New York City.
