Schertz Police Receives Gift from Santikos Entertainment

Santikos Check Presentation News Post

At the December 11 City Council meeting the Schertz Police Department received a $27,000.00 donation from Santikos Entertainment to help fund new equipment for the department. 

“This incredibly generous donation allows the department to complete two important goals of completely outfitting every marked patrol vehicle with an AED and assigning every patrol officer a body camera,” commented Schertz Police Chief, Michael Hansen. 

Funds from this donation will supply Schertz PD with fifteen WatchGuard body worn cameras, which help provide better evidence documentation when officers are in the field, increased officer accountability, and department transparency. Additionally, nine Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s) will be purchased for patrol vehicles. 

During the check presentation Santikos Entertainment Director of Strategy and Innovation, Andrew Brooks commented, “This small gift to the Schertz Police Department is just a small example of the gift John L. Santikos left to the San Antonio Area Foundation and our local community. Just like this gift is going to save and change lives, the gift that he left leaves us with a mission to save and change lives every day.” 

The Schertz Police Department has already received the funds from this donation and will be working diligently to secure all of the equipment as soon as possible. 

“Without this donation, these purchases would have been at least a budget year away from happening. As Mr. Brooks shared with Council, this donation will fulfill their promise to save and change lives and leave the community better than it was found,” stated Chief Hansen.
