(Fargo, ND) -- The Fargo Police Department and the FBI are working to build and strengthen relationships with residents at The Arbors.

The department is sending out officers to reach out to people living at the South Fargo apartment complex on 23rd Street South across from Countryside Trailer Court. With approval and assistance from the management of The Arbors, law enforcement personnel from the FPD and FBI, including detectives, Special Agents and uniformed patrol, will be knocking on doors and having conversations with residents. FBI personnel will include interpreters to communicate with residents whose primary language may not be English. Agencies are not conducting search warrants or searching for specific individuals.

“Through this collaborative effort with our federal partners, we aim to build better relationships with the Arbors community and help prevent future violent crime in the area," said Fargo Police Chief Dave Zibolski in a statement released to WDAY Radio. "This initiative reflects our commitment to developing safe and unified communities built on trust, accountability and inclusion.”

This is the first outreach partnership between the Fargo Police and the FBI, with hopes to curb violent crime and drug-related calls to the complex.
