  • City Manager Sheryl Sculley announced the five finalists to lead SAPD. Among the candidates is Interim Chief Anthony Treviño.

City Manager Sheryl Sculley announced on Thursday that five finalists have been selected to replace former Chief William McManus as San Antonio’s top cop.

The five finalists are:



-Anthony Treviño, Interim Chief of Police, San Antonio

-Art Acevedo, Chief of Police, Austin

-Malik Aziz, Deputy Chief of Police, Dallas

-Albert Salinas, Deputy Chief of Police, Las Vegas

-Roberto Villaseñor, Chief of Police, Tucson

Treviño, McManus’ former chief of staff, has served as interim chief since December of 2014. A group of Latino community advocates rallied in July for Sculley to remove the "interim" tag.

The finalists emerged from a pool of over 60 applicants. The five remaining candidates will now go through a final round of interviews with Sculley and a panel of community organizations.

Sculley will select a candidate for the job by the end of August. City Council will likely confirm the candidate in September.
