Last call

Inkster Police Det. Lt. Jeffrey Smith performed his “last call” July 9 before officially beginning his retirement.  Smith served for more than 27 years with the Inkster Police Department. During his tour of duty Smith moved up the ranks from patrol officer to executive lieutenant and  oversaw both patrol and investigations. His commitment to the department extended beyond the day to day operations, officials said. Smith also served as the department SRT Commander and lead firearms instructor. His knowledge, expertise, and leadership helped to guide all of those that he supervised and his legacy will continue on for many years in those that he trained, commented Police Chief William T. Riley. “While he will be sorely missed, everyone at the department hopes that this next chapter is everything he hopes for and he enjoys every minute of retirement,” Riley added.
