KENMARE, N.D. _ Community policing means lunching with kids at the school, giving sober rides after bar hours and sharing stories with the truckers and staff at the local Cenex. It’s also trading the badge for a medical responder title when there’s an ambulance run and feeling the community’s pain when arson strikes a city landmark. Community policing is important to Kenmare’s two-person police department. The department consists of a transplanted California mom as chief and a multi-lingual assistant chief raised in Asia, but the officers are fully bonded to their small Ward County community.
