San Antonio police officers will be donning tricentennial commemorative badges next year.

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus unveiled the badge on Monday.

It contains images that include the Spanish coat-of-arms, the Franciscan seal, and an image of the Governor of Coahuila and Texas, Martín de Alarcón, who established and named both Mission San Antonio de Valero (later known as the Alamo) and the Presidio San Antonio de Béxar, a garrison to protect the mission.

Chief McManus has approved the badge to be worn by active sworn SAPD members throughout 2018.
