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.

There is anxious anticipation in the immigrant community that President Donald Trump may soon repeal DACA – the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy – and anger over the possible loss of DACA is being felt in the streets.

"Get out of the street!," shouted a San Antonio Police Bike Patrol Officer to a group of about 100 protesters who carried signs and banners in support of the nation's immigrants.

There were some tense minutes as immigrant rights activists and San Antonio Police bike patrol officers faced off Friday afternoon.
