Insight from WFPD: What happens once a West Fargo Police Officer gets hired?
It's sad to say, but only 20 years ago or so a lot of new police officers were only given a couple of days of training. Usually an older, seasoned officer from the same shift did the training, and then you were handed the keys to a squad car and told to start patrolling the streets. In some small towns in North Dakota this is still occurring due to lack of time and personnel to do the training.
