The Fargo Police Department held its annual Fargo United Event on August 28. The Community Engagement Team and members of the community came together and had a great time. Fargo PD welcomed 13 new officers today. The officers recently graduated from the Fargo Police Academy and we are excited to see the great things they will do for the department and community. Good luck and welcome to the team.

We have two videos tonight. First, the Communications Team has a status update on the demolition of the Mid America Steel site; then we will look at the collaborative smart energy features of the RoCo parking ramp in Downtown Fargo.
