A longtime second-in-command at the Bryan Police Department says he's ready to move up.
Current Acting Chief Peter Scheets confirmed Wednesday he will seek the permanent post of chief of police.
The Deputy Chief was promoted to acting chief following the resignation of Ty Morrow earlier this month. The 12-year Bryan veteran has served twice in that capacity during Morrow's recent extended administrative leave.
Scheet's competition for the job probably won't come from very far away. The city says it will not conduct a national search, but will focus instead on Texas and locally.
