Arkansas police officer LC “Buckshot” Smith is 91 years old and has zero plans of retiring anytime soon. What an inspiration! He has worked in law enforcement for more than 56 years and he says he will retire “when the good Lord says so.” He turns 92 in May 2021.
Buckshot was a sheriff deputy for 46 years before he first retired… and it was evidently a short-lived retirement because he quickly realized how much he missed his work. He says he just loves the excitement of being on the force, something that prompted him to join back in the 1960s.
LC “Buckshot” Smith is extremely dedicated to his line of work
Texann Shadden, a training coordinator at the department calls Buckshot a dedicated part of the force and their community. He remembers one time when the snowfall in town was so bad that Buckshot walked three blocks to work in the snow because he couldn’t get his car out. That’s how dedicated this man is.
