It is with a very heavy heart that we report the passing of Deputy Chief Richard “R.W.” Smith following his long battle with cancer.
Deputy Chief Smith began his career with the WFPD in 1983 and graduated from our 41st Police Academy.
He had served our community for over 38 years.
Please keep his friends and family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
Services are pending.
Deputy Chief Smith, rest easy brother. We have the watch from here!
