Law Enforcement in Texas: Seguin’s Newest Police Officer Carries On Family Tradition

 

1-Jeremy collage

When Seguin Police Officer Jeremy New received his official badge in a ceremony at City Hall,  Dec. 29, he continued a family tradition in law enforcement.  Particularly meaningful  was the fact that New’s great grandmother Eunice Schneider, wife of former Seguin Police Chief, the late  Leroy Schneider, was the one to pin the badge on New’s uniform.

Captain Schneider  served as Police Chief of Seguin for 38 years and was a legendary figure in Seguin law-enforcement and government.

Officer New is a Seguin native, graduate of Seguin High School, class of 2009 .   From there, he went on to graduate from Texas State University  in 2013 with a B.A . in Criminal Justice .  In March of 2014 he then  completed his graduate work  from The San Antonio College Law Enforcement Training Academy.

Parents of Officer New  are Angela Herrera Martinez & Bryan New.  New’s sister, Devon, is also working in law enforcement having recently been hired by the City  of Nixon as their first  full-time female police officer.
