Fargo Park District loses park police officer position
FARGO (KVRR) – The Fargo Park District no longer has a police officer who works exclusively on park-related enforcement matters.
Executive Director Dave Leker says the changes were made earlier this month by Fargo Police Chief Dave Zibolski.
Leker says Zibolski prefers a department-wide approach to patrolling the parks, rather than limiting the job to a single officer.
Leker says he supports the changes.
Officer Josh Marvig had been the Fargo Park District’s officer since 2018. Marvig remains a fulltime Fargo police officer.
The Park District Police program was started by former Fargo Park District Executive Director Joel Vettel, a retired Fargo police investigator.
The Fargo Park District is operated by the Fargo Park Board, which is independent of the city of Fargo and the Fargo City Commission.
