Our Committment to Diversity and Equal Opportunity


The Fargo Police Department values diversity within its work force. Applicants from varied walks of life who have different backgrounds, experiences and abilities are encouraged to apply. Approximately 15 percent of the department’s police officers are female.

The department is committed to providing women and minorities with equal opportunity, a respectful work environment and the chance to pursue a variety of assignments during their careers. The department’s Police Training Officer Program works closely with all new officers to ensure they receive the best and most comprehensive training possible.

Female and minority officers are available for you to ask questions of and receive additional information from. Female or minority applicants who would like to talk with a female or minority Fargo Police Officer should contact Sgt. Mike Bernier 701-476-4102 or
