Anthony Trevino, or Tony as he's known, has been named as interim police chief by City Manager Sheryl Sculley. He starts his new assignment Jan. 1.
Trevino is a veteran member of the San Antonio Police Department, and most recently has served as Deputy Chief, and outgoing Police Chief William McManus' chief of staff.
Rarely can anyone find McManus at City Hall or at a crime scene without Trevino somewhere nearby. He's soft-spoken and doesn't attract much attention. That's one of the main differences he sees as he transitions from a behind the scenes staff member.
