FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Police reform and racial equity are on the minds of many following the conviction of former Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin in the murder of George Floyd.

Fargo Police Chief David Zibolski met with local leaders of Black Lives Matter and another activist organization, OneFargo, on Wednesday to address that reform, which he says is simply part of the progression of law enforcement.

Zibolski says in order for police to be successful and work in partnership with the community, they have to have adaptability, flexibility to progress, be forward-thinkers in terms of what may be a better way to do something than past practices.
