FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Fargo police officer who was the target of an internal investigation involving a personnel complaint has been fired.

KFGO radio reports that David Boelke received a termination letter Monday from Fargo Police Chief Dave Todd. Todd said in the letter that Boelke failed to respond to incidents, failed to collect evidence and failed to take reports involving criminal activity.

Boelke’s attorney, Mark Friese, wrote a letter to Todd last week criticizing the investigation. Friese said Todd has committed a crime by furthering a “defamatory matter.” Todd denies any wrongdoing in creating the investigative report.

Boelke has the right to appeal. Friese says Boelke is exploring his options.
