Montana Fights to Keep New FBI Office from Closing, Moving to North Dakota

Montana Gov. Steve Bullock is urging the FBI to reconsider plans to move a field office from the state to North Dakota.

“When the FBI was looking to set-up an office in the area, Sidney community leaders recognized the importance of having these resources in the area and stepped up to offer space and support to the agents. Now the FBI needs to step-up and recognize the importance of keeping the office in Sidney,” Bullock told the Sidney Herald.

The FBI opened an office in Sidney last year because of a spike in crime from development around the Bakken oil fields.

But now some authorities say the time has come to bring back the agents in North Dakota where they are more needed.
