Meet The 91-Year-Old Police Officer Who Is Not Planning To Retire Any Time Soon

LC "Buckshot" Smith is a 91-year-old African American Police Officer that has been serving the community of Camden, Arkansas United States of America. He has been serving his community for the past 56 years.

Smith who started as a police sheriff in the 1960s tried retiring in September 2010 but came back 5 months later after missing his job of enforcing the law that he loves so much.

Smith believes that a good police officer is not the one that made the highest arrests, but, instead, the one that has compassion for the citizens he is serving.

When the nonagenarian was asked the time he would finally call it quit with his enforcement job, he said he will do so when the good Lord says so.

If this is not the epitome of patriotism and dedication I wonder what it is.

The Lord will always be your strength, "Buckshot" Smith.
