FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Fargo’s City Commission has voted to form an independent panel to review disciplinary policies in the city’s police department

Some former officers have raised concerns about morale and administrative oversight. Police Chief Keith Ternes suggested having an independent board look at the department and its practices.

The five-member panel approved by the City Commission includes retired Highway Patrol Superintendent Jim Prochniak, retired Cass County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Jim Thoreson and Clay County, Minnesota, Administrator Brian Berg.

KFGO radio reports (https://bit.ly/1pDzN3A ) that the panel will have up to $100,000 available to hire consultants to conduct confidential interviews with police officers.
