SAN ANGELO, TX -- In 2016 the City of San Angelo experienced a highly contested election for the winner to be named chief of police. After coming out victorious over previous Chief of Police Tim Vasquez, Frank Carter said that he aged about five years in five months.

Fast forward four years later, the position for San Angelo's Chief of Police was up for re-election but no one stepped foward to challenge the current elected chief. Frank Carter filed for re-election and was the only candidate to file for the seat. The City Council approved a motion to not hold a police chief election at all since there was no opposition. Carter won re-election by default!

As Carter prepared for his second term, he shared his thoughts in a ride-along with ABC38/San Angelo LIVE! Reporter Jacquelyn Quinones about being unopposed, the crime rate in the city, and what the biggest change to the San Angelo Police Department we could see under Carter's administration during the next four years.
