Mike Reitan was terminated as police chief Monday evening during a city commission meeting

WEST FARGO, N.D. — The City of West Fargo is planning to begin its search for a new police chief following the termination of Mike Reitan.

A spokesperson for the city says they will first review the job description of the position.

It will be open to both external and internal applicants.
