Sheriff Jesse Jahner: Law enforcement in northern North Dakota counties stretched thin by border calls

(Fargo, ND) -- Cass County Sheriff Jesse Jahner is expressing concern about reduced manpower patrolling the Northern Border.

"Pulling resources from that northern border down to help staff the southern border obviously puts strains on our local enforcement in those particular areas because now they are responding to calls for service, activities on the border. 

Jahner says law enforcement officers in Renville County North Dakota in particular are being pulled away from their regular patrol duties while handling calls at the border.
