Increasing Crime Prompts FBI to Open Permanent Office in North Dakota Oil Patch

North Dakota’s oil boom has brought with it an upswing in crime.

To combat the rising crime, the FBI is opening a permanent office in northwest North Dakota, the Associated Press reports.

The crime is fed by a population increase and has included human and drug homicides and organized crime.

Although the FBI has offices in Bismarck, Grand Forks, Fargo and Minot, they are still a long drive to the northwest part of the state .

The last time the FBI opened a new satellite office was in New London, Conn., in 2006.

The office is expected to include four agents, an analyst and clerical staff.

“We aren’t expecting them to come and save us from anything,” said Williams County Sherriff Scott Busching. “We don’t need saving; we need help.”
