Congratulations Officer Cale Smith
Cale Smith
Cale came to work for the Euless Police Department in 2002. He completed his field training and was assigned to the Patrol Division. While he was assigned to the Patrol Division he tested and was awarded Senior Officer status. Cale went on to apply and be accepted for an assignment to the Tactical Team where he served for several years.
Recently, Cale applied for and was transferred to the Criminal Investigation Division, where he currently serves as a Criminal Investigator. Cale has proven his abilities all along his career path but it appears that Criminal Investigations is where his real passion and abilities are found. His ability to work his cases, interview witnesses and victims lead to his selection as the Euless Police Department’s Officer of the Year in 2015.  Cale has the ability to relate to and communicate with most anyone. He has proven himself a true servant and the Euless Police Department is grateful that Cale chose to serve this community.
When Cale is not working he can be found on the baseball diamond. Cale is a professional Baseball Umpire. He can be seen calling high school, college, and professional baseball games. When baseball season comes around Cale can be a very busy man.
As much as I have said about his career as a police officer and his work in the baseball the main motivator in Cale’s life is his family. Cale is the consummate family man. He loves to spend time with his wife and daughter and is a true role model for those around him.

About the Rotary International District 5790 Honoring Those Who Serve Vocational Initiative.
Rotary Clubs throughout District 5790 are recognizing the vocations of our Communities first responders and teachers on a quarterly basis. According to District 5790 Vocational Award Recognition. Chair Eddie Salame, during each quarter of the 2016/17 Rotary year district clubs will recognize a police officer, firefighter, paramedic and a teacher. Depending on club, recognition will be done in the same month of the quarter or they can be spread out throughout the quarter. In other words, clubs can recognize a teacher the first month of the quarter, a firefighter/paramedic the second month and a police officer on the third month. Or clubs may also recognize all three professionals in the same month.
During the month of March 2017, all clubs will review all the recipients that were recognized by their club. One of the winners from each category is to be submitted for District wide recognition. By April 1st each club in the district will submit the name of one teacher, one firefighter/paramedic and one police officer from the club, along with the write-up  used  to select that  person.
The district committee will review all the candidates submitted and select one person from each category to be invited to the district conference for recognition. Clubs will be notified if a person from their club has been selected.
