Audio: Fired Fargo Cop Tells His Side of the Story


Fargo police officer David Boelke was fired yesterday by Chief David Todd for a number of reasons.

You can read Todd’s memo justifying the termination below.

I had Boelke on my radio show today alongside his attorney Mark Friese of the Vogel Law Firm.

I asked Boelke why this happened. “I don’t know if this is personal animus toward me,” he said.

“I’ve worked hard and given a lot to this community over the last 15 years,” he added.

An investigation into Boelke’s job performance was initiated after he missed a court appearance he’d been subpoenaed for. Boelke admitted to having messed up in that instance, but suggested that the termination may have been rooted in something more personal.
