San Antonio Police Department is joining in on the city’s tricentennial celebration by allowing officers to wear commemorative badges during calendar year 2018.
“We are a part of the community,” Chief William McManus said. “It’s good for morale, it’s good for folks to see and it’s a nice commemorative token of the city’s 300th anniversary.”
The newly-designed badge is round in shape, includes the Spanish coat of arms, the Franciscan seal and a picture of Martin de Alarcon.
The badges come at no cost to the city or department, according to McManus.
