FARGO - A community memorial service will be held this afternoon for Fargo Police Officer Jake Wallin. Flag Family Media will carry the service live. It begins at 1 p.m. at Scheels Arena.  Doors will open at 11 a.m. Due to limited parking, you are asked to carpool. Backpacks, purses and bags are not allowed.

Sympathy cards for the Wallin family can be placed within baskets located inside of the main entrance. The event program will be available virtually and will be accessible via a QR code that will be posted in multiple locations throughout the arena. Members of the community wishing to share messages with the Wallin family and the FPD will be able to do so on online (which will be accessed through the QR code). 

All those attending will be given a blue memorial ribbon in honor of Officer Wallin upon entry to the facility, presented by The Fargo Police Department.
If you would like to show your support along the route that Fargo Police and the Wallin Family will take, they'll be leaving police headquarters at 11:45 a.m. and traveling 25th St. S. to I-94.  The procession will then travel westbound on I-94 to 45th St. S., where it will exit and travel southbound on 45th St. S. to 32nd Ave. S. and then on to Scheels Arena.
