Job Well Done Nominee

PFC Kyle Smith


This case began with PFC Smith responding to a stolen vehicle complaint at a dealership in the City. Kyle arrived on scene, gathered the necessary evidence, and took the initial report. PFC Smith took the case further and used tracking information for the vehicle to track it as it drove through North Carolina. Working against the clock, PFC Smith completed the proper paperwork for the vehicle and had the vehicle entered as stolen in the national database. PFC Smith continued to track the vehicle through North Carolina, into the state of Virginia, where he worked with Virginia State Police to track the vehicle and have it stopped. PFC Smith then worked with Virginia State Police supplying them enough evidence to charge and arrest the driver. PFC Smith then completed the required warrant requests for the offender and presented them to the judge.

Although an arrest had been made, PFC Smith still did not stop his investigation of this case. PFC Smith contacted the solicitor and attempted to arrange extradition for the suspect back to South Carolina to fully close the case with an arrest. PFC Smith then notified the victim of the vehicle’s location to allow the stolen vehicle and property inside to be recovered.

PFC Smith showed a strong desire to close the case and return the property to the victim which involved NCIC entries, warrant requests, tracking of stolen property across multiple states, and potential extradition of an offender back to South Carolina. During this investigation PFC Smith was able to coordinate the successful recovery of stolen property and arrest of the offender. PFC Smith this is truly, “a job well done”!
