The Retirement of Chief Wendell Smith

We would like to acknowledge the retirement of our beloved Chief of Police, Chief Wendell Smith. Chief Smith has been with the Chesilhurst Police Department for over twenty-two years. His emphasis has always been on building relationships first, while leading with a community-based approach in which now most departments are attempting to implement more of. He has been a dedicated, and consistent pillar within in the Chesilhurst community for a very long time. Throughout his career he has focused a great deal of his time to mentoring youth in the community of Chesilhurst and beyond. Chief Smith is a man of faith, and has a strong conviction to help others which consistently has been shown by his actions. Throughout his career he has held the position of Patrolman, Detective, Detective Sgt. Patrol Sgt., and Chief of Police. During the last thirteen years as Chief of Police, Chief Smith has had a big part in helping innovate the Chesilhurst Police Department in various ways, thus leaving the department more equipped as a result. Chief Smith, you truly will be missed! Thank you so much for all that you have done, the people that you have touched, the lives that you have changed, and the lives that you have saved. Enjoy retirement Chief, God’s speed!
