Killdeer police chief resigns for oilfield job

Killdeer Police Chief Chris Fenstermaker has resigned his post for a higher-paying oilfield job.

Fenstermaker submitted his resignation at a Killdeer City Commission special meeting held June 12.

After working at the department for approximately five years, Fenstermaker said he’s leaving law enforcement for a safety position with an oilfield company. He didn’t say which company, but he will still reside in Killdeer.

Wednesday will be his last day as chief.

“I’m just excited for the change to see for myself how it is,” he said.
