Sergeant Baker has served the UPT Police Department for the past 20 years. After graduating from the University Of Dayton in 1991 with a BS in Marketing, he then joined the Brookhaven Fire Company in 1992 as a first responder where he remained until joining the UPT Police Department. Sergeant Baker says his favorite part of his job is seeing the smiles on people’s face after helping them with their problem. He also enjoys working side-by-side with a group of individuals committed to one common goal of keeping Upper Providence Township a safe place to live. 

One of his favorite memories as a police officer was when he helped a sweet elderly female who asked me to retrieve a deceased chicken in her chicken coop and placed it in her freezer so she could take it to the vet the next day.

Some things that Sergeant Baker enjoys are watching European Premier Football, decorating for Halloween, and exercising!

Thank you for your service and leadership Sergeant Baker!
