Franklin "Frank" Truman is the sheriff of Twin Peaks.
He gave the nickname "Hawk" to Tommy Hill, referring to a tomahawk due to Hill's heritage.
He served as a Green Beret in the Vietnam War. He then became the sheriff of Twin Peaks, a position previously held by his father and subsequently by Harry when Frank left Twin Peaks. He also had a job in law enforcement in western Washington, the area his wife originated from.

By 2014, Frank had returned to Twin Peaks, once again serving as sheriff in the stead of his brother, who had become ill.
After a fishing trip, Frank went to the sheriff's station after speaking with Lucy Brennan on a cell phone, which scared her, causing her to fall back in her chair. He then got an update from Maggie and the fellow deputies on situations that had occurred in the town while he was away, including a drug overdose by Denny Craig. He saw Deputy Bobby Briggs in the hallway and surmised that Denny's overdose was from Chinese designer drugs and told Bobby to keep on the lookout.
Truman then met with Hawk, concerning a message from Margaret Lanterman's log that related to FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper, who had disappeared from the town 25 years prior. He dismissed the skeptical Deputy Chad Broxford and Bobby revealed to them that Cooper was the last one to have seen his father alive, but did not know what the two discussed. Andy and Lucy's son, Wally Brando then arrived and paid his respects to Frank's brother, hoping for him to overcome his illness.
