Frakes promoted to lieutenant

The Rawlins Police Department last month announced the promotion of Jared Frakes from the rank of sergeant to lieutenant.

The promotion came six months after a wrongful death lawsuit involving Frakes and another officer was settled of court. The case laid bare public concerns about law enforcement in the city.

Bigfoot 99’s Cali O’Hare sat down with Lt. Frakes last week to talk about the promotion and the aftermath of that fateful night in 2015.
