Beat System

The West Fargo Police Department’s Patrol Division has a fixed beat system. With a fixed beat, officers work primarily in one beat and can address issues within their designated area long-term.  

A Sergeant is assigned to each beat to ensure officer accountability, analyze police activity, coordinate with stakeholders and identify problem solving opportunities. The information gathered throughout each officer’s shift is shared during shift briefings and through the Department's Criminal Intelligence Analyst.  

This proactive approach is part of the West Fargo Police Department’s commitment to ensuring and preserving a high quality of life for residents, businesses and visitors in the City of West Fargo. 

Residents who would like to talk to their beat Sergeant or Officers regarding a specific problem can call the West Fargo Police Department at 701-515-5500.
