Message from Chief of Police

 

Welcome to the newly revised website for the Schertz Police Department.  This site will be ongoing, fluid and ever changing.  Check back often to see what is new in your police department.  You may also “like” us on Facebook for up to the minute updates on a variety of topics such as important crime information, special events and programs and perhaps some entertaining and fun facts about the men and women that serve this community each day.

 

The Schertz Police Department is dedicated to public service.  The Law Enforcement Code of Ethics states in its first line that the fundamental responsibility of a Law Enforcement Officer is to serve the community.  We take that to hear.  Our desire is to work in partnership with the community to improve the quality of life of our citizens and guests.

 

The City of Schertz is a rapidly growing community with increased demands upon all city services, especially those of public service.  We are constantly striving to find new ways to improve our service, our response, and our presence.  Our goal is to be good stewards of our allotted revenues by exploring ways to improve effectiveness and efficiency.

 

I hope that you will take interest in your Police Department and will look into programs such as the Citizen Police Academy, Citizen Patrol, and the various crime prevention programs conducted throughout the year.

 

Again, thank you for visiting this site, please take the time to look through all the associated pages and check back often.

 

Michael R. Hansen,

 

Chief of Police
