The West Fargo Police Department and Fargo Police Department invite the community to West Fargo United 5:30-8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 27, 2021, in the L.E. Berger Elementary School outdoor field, 631 4th Ave. E., West Fargo. The event will feature food, activities and giveaways to help the community interact with each other and the police departments.
“We’ve been back in the community this summer making connections,” said cultural liaison officer Ryan Feltman. “We want to continue these efforts with the West Fargo United event, where we can come together, have some fun and learn about our neighbors.”
DPB, the positive rap artist who has collaborated with the departments, will perform at the event and interact with attendees. There will also be bouncy houses, and an opportunity to take on police officers in a tug of war, pie-eating and basketball. There will also be free all-beef hot dogs, popcorn and snow cones until supplies run out. Prizes will be given away throughout the night, including brand-new youth bicycles.
This free event is made possible through the generous support of First Lutheran Church of Fargo, United Way of Cass Clay, Costco Wholesale, Cash Wise Foods, Hornbacher’s, Sysco, Meats by John and Wayne, Sam’s Club and Pepsi.
The West Fargo Police Department’s cultural liaison program is part of the Community Outreach Programs and Services Unit, which works to build strong connections with the community so the police department can become a trusted resource. The cultural liaison officer specifically works to break down barriers that may exist between any cultural communities and the police. These efforts have included building relationships with New American organizations, coordinated free swimming lessons for more than 80 children each year and hosting special events like West Fargo United.
