WA’s longest serving police officer was laid to rest yesterday, after more than 50 years on the beat with the WA Police force.
Bill Smith served as a police officer across multiple WA police stations and retired in 2014.
His daughter Deborah paid tribute to him on 6PR’s Millsy at Midday this afternoon.
“Dad was a larger than life character,” she said.
“He loved his job, he loved serving the community, and was just an all round nice person.
“He always had a good story and yarn to tell, and he always took the time to listen to people.”
