Fargo Parks District Approves Plans for Single Officer Police Department

The Fargo Park Board is moving forward with the development of a single-officer Park District Police Department.

After a unanimous vote Tuesday night, the Board approved the resolution brought forward by Parks Executive Director Joel Vettel.

He hopes to have the position, if approved by the state, filled by March.

Vettel says the park officer will work with the Fargo PD to identify problem areas and focus on improving safety.
