As a police officer, Sergeant Kevin Pallas is as humble as

he is good. The 56-year-old West Fargo resident has been

an officer for 23 years with the Fargo Police Department

and is presently serving in his 35th year as a North

Dakota Police Officer. Currently, he supervises the School

Resource Officer (SRO) program, Community Trust

Officer (CTO) program, Cultural Liaison Officer (CLO)

program and the Park Liaison Officer (PLO) program.

A Full Resume

Originally from Superior, Wisconsin, Sgt. Pallas still

upholds his status as a bona fide Cheesehead proudly

supporting the Green Bay Packers. Upon graduating

from Superior Senior High School, he attended the

Law Enforcement Academy in Hibbing, Minnesota from

1983-85, along with attending the Community College

in Hibbing as well. He received his first law enforcement

position as an officer in Bowman, ND in 1985.

“Being so young, the instructors always said, ‘Go where

you get hired first and get some experience.’ That ended

up turning into Bowman, ND. The southwestern town was

smaller - about 2,500 people, so that was helpful. It was

a busy little city just coming out of the first oil boom in

the mid-80s with a lot of travelers coming through for the

Black Hills,” said Sgt. Pallas.

The following year in 1986, he became

an officer in Wahpeton, ND through late

1996. He enjoyed his years in Wahpeton as

a patrol officer and was able to be the

first school liaison officer to the schools

while developing a crime prevention

program in the city as well and in January of

1997, he joined the Fargo Police Department

as an officer.
