FBI to Open Resident Agency Office in Williston

By  | 

The Federal Bureau of Investigation will be opening up a resident agency office in Williston.

FBI Special Agent in Charge Richard Thornton says they decided to open the new office in response to the growth, economic activity and increase in crime in the Bakken region.

The office in Williston will join the four existing offices in North Dakota, which are currently located in Fargo, Grand Forks, Minot and Bismarck.

It is expected to be up and running later this year.
