The City of Schertz is a rapidly growing and thriving community with excellent schools situated on the northeast side of San Antonio. We are the second largest city in the San Antonio metroplex, located within Bexar, Comal, and Guadalupe counties. The Schertz Police Department is dedicated to delivering exemplary police services. We subscribe to a policing philosophy of core delivery services that are rich in community-based policing, transparency, and accountability. To us, providing excellent police services is more than just issuing a citation or writing a report; it means working collaboratively with the community to prevent crime and solve community issues.

Our goal is to remain a highly respected and professional police department that serves as a role model for Texas law enforcement. Law enforcement exists to serve the public by becoming an integral part of the community and by forging relationships to enhance our ability to solve problems and achieve a common goal of public safety.
