Dick Tracy Wiki

Captain Smith was a Coast Guard officer stationed in Dick Tracy's city. He was a bald man with pronounced ears and thin hair on the side of his head.

The Human Traffickers[]

When Tracy was investigating Stud Bronzen's human trafficking activities, he approached Captain Smith for aid. Smith agreed with Tracy's assessment of the evidence and introduced Tracy to Chief Shellbury, of whom Smith spoke highly.


  • Captain Smith apparently had no further direct involvement with Tracy's investigation of the human trafficking ring after introducing Tracy to Chief Shellbury.
  • There is no stated connection between Chief Smith and any of the other characters named Smith that have appeared in the strip (i.e. Laffy Smith, Memphis Smith, etc).
