He has been a familiar face for decades of the Bermuda Police Service, but on Monday, May 31, 2021, Officer Calvin Smith finished his last shift with little fanfare.

His longtime service was acknowledged yesterday by Police Commissioner Stephen Corbishley, who published this post on Facebook yesterday: “Very sad to experience the final day of service in the BPS for the Commissioner’s Staff Officer Cal(vin) Smith.

Very sad to experience the final day of service in the BPS for the Commissioner’s Staff Officer Cal(vin) Smith.

“Cal’s service to the community has been exceptional and over many years. From the protection of visiting members of the Royal Family, Prime Ministers and overseas VIPS right through to the investigation of serious crime, he has ticked the lot.

“I wish him the very best in his next venture and also publicly thank his (better) half Lisa as behind every good man is an even better woman!

“I will miss him, however what I will not miss is his mischief and me coming in to my office (on more than one occasion I note) and finding it decorated with Liverpool banners, flags and photos,” he said.
 
“However, in the words of the KOP: ‘Cal, you will never walk alone’ and will always remain part of the BPS family.”
