         2013 City of the Year

The City of West Fargo was awarded the 2013 City of the Year by the North Dakota League of Cities. The ND League of Cities cited West Fargo's rapid growth of its school system, industrial park, and subdivisions as some of the reasons for the award.

West Fargo, with an estimated population of 30,000, is one of the fastest growing communities in North Dakota with a growth rate of 72.9% between 2000 and 2010. We are proud of our student oriented school district, accessible park facilities, and a variety of housing options. All these features and more help to make the community of West Fargo an ideal city for your home. Boasting opportunities for both families and businesses, West Fargo combines all the benefits of a small town atmosphere but also remains competitive in the growing metropolitan area of Fargo/Moorhead. Welcome to the City on the Grow!

Law enforcement officers are a gateway by which many people in the community begin to receive services relating to mental health, chemical dependency or an identified vulnerability. An officer’s simple observation of a person’s behaviors relating to mental health or chemical dependency can frequently identify a person in need of service. The behaviors of a person in need of protective services due to their vulnerability can be more difficult to recognize or detect as there is typically a gradual onset of symptoms. Those people closest to the person may not recognize the bit by bit changes that occur over a period of days, weeks, or months. An officer entering the situation with a clear eye may quickly see symptoms the family has overlooked.

December brought a change in the weather. It also brought some change within the West Fargo Police Department. Three new police officers, Matt Oldham, Austin Bagley and Joe Solberg have joined the Department. Oldham had been an employee of the City of Fargo and a Cass County Reserve Deputy. Bagley had worked as a deputy sheriff with the Williams County Sheriff’s Office and Solberg worked as a corrections officer for Clay County and as a part time police officer in Dilworth. Their current positions are partially funded by a Department of Justice Grant.

A person choosing to go into the profession of law enforcement must recognize, as an officer, they will be under the constant scrutiny of their critics and will be held to a higher standard of conduct than the general public. The officer’s behavior, on-duty or off-duty, has a significant impact on the officer’s career and on the public’s perception of the officer. Those perceptions may also be focused upon the agency the officer is employed by and upon all the men and women who serve within the law enforcement community.
