Fargo police to focus on school zones

FARGO – In conjunction with the beginning of the school year, the Fargo Police Department administration will take part in Blue Days today and Friday.

As part of Blue Days, patrol staff, school resource officers, traffic unit members and command staff will conduct traffic enforcement throughout the city, focusing on areas in and around schools zones.

The purpose of the added enforcement is to encourage compliance with municipal and state traffic laws, create a safe environment in school zones and encourage seatbelt usage.

Along with the standard traffic enforcement, all officers involved are encouraged to interact with school staff, students and parents in a non-enforcement setting to meet those they serve.
