With rapid population expansion in North Dakota, crime has also gone up--and it's important to stay safe.
That's why Tracey Hawkins has traveled from Missouri to Minot to give some advice about staying safe in a changing environment.
(Tracey Hawkins, Safety Lady) "There are ways you can burglar-proof your own home on a budget and do it yourself. We are going to talk about safety on the road. Things you can do in an emergency situation when you're traveling. Basically I am giving you the tools and the information to live your life safely."
If you would like to hear Tracey's tips she will be at the Grand Hotel from 7 to 8 p.m. She will also provide pepper spray and other tools for purchase.
Two people were shot by Minot Police officers in an early morning incident Saturday.
One has been released from the hospital, the other is still hospitalized.
