List of Appearances

Dale 'Smithy' Smith first arrived at Sun Hill as an ambitious P.C., following military service with the Queen's Royal Fusiliers. He had no time for political correctness and sometimes appeared to be racist and homophobic. This led him to clash with many colleagues and senior officers.

Smithy did strike up a friendship with Sgt. Bob Cryer, who persuaded him to pursue his ambition to become an armed police officer, although Supt. Tom Chandler only supported his application in order to get rid of him from Sun Hill. Smithy joined SO19, and began his training. Cryer's career ended when Smithy accidentally shot him during a hostage scenario not long after completing his training. Cryer did not bear any malice, but Chandler took the opportunity to have Cryer retired.

Two years later, Smithy returned to Sun Hill as the new Sergeant following the death of Sgt. Matthew Boyden. Shortly after his return, Smithy fell madly in love with P.C. Kerry Young, who had recently split from her gay husband P.C. Luke Ashton. He also formed a close friendship and working relationship with Insp. Gina Gold. However, Smithy was accused by Luke of being homophobic towards him and was also accused of racism by Adam Okaro. Smithy also joined PC Gabriel Kent's "SWAMP" (Straight White Male Police Association). But he then showed a more sensitive side when he was the one to find D.C. Mickey Webb after he had been raped. Mickey later opted for a transfer, leaving Smithy feeling guilty for the way he had handled the situation.

After five years as a Sergeant, Smithy received a second promotion from newly promoted Supt. Jack Meadows when he was promoted to Inspector, following the departure of Insp. Rachel Weston.
