HARTFORD (CBS Connecticut) _ Hartford Police Officer William Smith has been with the department since graduating the Academy in 2006, but mistake after mistake led to him handing over his resignation letter Monday.

Police Chief James Rovella accepted Smith’s resignation.

The most recent and glaring error by Smith came this past September when he let a prisoner wanted by Rocky Hill police go before police could pick him up in Hartford.

Smith was also reprimanded multiple times during his tenure including a 160-day suspension in early 2013, as well as a criminal conviction.
