Remembering the Past.  Looking to the Future.

San Angelo is located in West Central Texas between the Texas hill country to the southeast and the rolling plains to the northwest.  Around the end of the Civil War, settlers began moving West in search of their fortunes.  Realizing its need to protect these citizens from Indians, the government began to establish forts on the frontier.  Fort Concho was established in 1867 at the union of the three rivers in West Central Texas.  The fort was home to mounted cavalry, infantry, and the famous Black Cavalry whose members were respectfully called "Buffalo Soldiers" by the Indians.  A small village by the name of Santa Angela came to life just across the river.  As the village grew into a community, it became a trade center for the many farmers and ranchers who had settled in the area.  In 1889, the Indians moved westward and the soldiers followed, abandoning Fort Concho.  With the agriculture and trade base, Santa Angela later became what is now San Angelo.

The San Angelo Police Department has enjoyed a long history, dating back to the turn of the century.  In 1947, the City of San Angelo elected to assume civil service status for its police department.  This status still stands today.  The Office of the Chief of Police is an elected position whose term is four years.  Our current police chief is Frank Carter.  He was elected in May 2016.  The San Angelo Police Department is currently authorized by city ordinance to employ 175 sworn officers.  As of March 2020, the Department employed 159 sworn officers. 


The San Angelo Police Department is committed to serving the community while protecting the rights of all persons. Consistent with this commitment, the Department’s Vision, Mission, and Core Values, in concert with the Law Enforcement Code of Ethics and the Department’s Management Principles, reflect the guiding philosophy of the San Angelo Police Department.
