Shortly after being appointed chief of police in Hitchcock, I started knocking on doors and introducing myself. While driving down state Highway 6 one morning, I observed several vehicles parked in the parking lot of the Knights of Columbus Council 10393 Hitchcock/Santa Fe Chapter.

I stopped and knocked on the door and an older gentleman answered. We exchanged greetings and he invited me inside. As I entered the hall, I noticed there were about 15 guys total sitting around drinking coffee and telling stories that day.

Wilmon C. Smith is chief of police in Hitchcock and lives in La Marque.
