N.D. Gov. calls on feds to maintain 'peace and order' along construction site for Dakota Access


MORTON COUNTY, N.D. – As Dakota Access Pipeline opponents shut down work Tuesday, Sept. 13, at multiple job sites, North Dakota’s governor called for federal assistance to maintain peace and public safety.

“With a decision on the pipeline delayed indefinitely, the federal government shares in the responsibility of ensuring that peace and order are maintained,” Gov. Jack Dalrymple said in a statement.

The Morton County Sheriff’s Office arrested 22 people at a Dakota Access construction site more than 80 miles northwest from the main protest site, including two people who bound themselves to equipment.
