FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - A Fort Wayne police officer was recognized for his work in the city's neighborhoods Monday.

The Neighborhoods United Group awarded northwest quadrant Captain P.J. Smith a plaque of appreciation.

Smith has been on the FWPD for more than 30 years.

The group wanted to show Smith their appreciation for his efforts to help pass the Commercial Problem Property ordinance.

Smith said he wasn't expecting the honor.

"It's an honor. Really, the credit goes to all the neighborhood people who let us know what's happening in their neighborhoods. Without the neighborhoods, we wouldn't be very effective," he said.

Smith was invited to the Neighborhoods United Group meeting Monday to answer questions about the new ordinance.
