Officer Chad Baker began his law enforcement career a little over 5 years ago, in the small town of Harrodsburg, Kentucky where he is still employed today. He is a small town cop with a big mission to bridge the gap between civilians and officers through humor and real life experiences shared with the general public through social media. He was born and raised in Danville, Kentucky. On June 30th, 2018 Officer Baker married his wife, Hilary, and they now have three sons named Jaxon, Jake, and Taylor.
When Chad spoke on the topic of becoming an officer he said “I’m often asked, “Why did you choose to be an officer”? And it’s quite simple for me; I’ve always had a passion for helping those unable to help themselves, as they are the most vulnerable. I did ride alongs with my local police department throughout high school, and that really sparked my fire for law enforcement. Also, by completing those ride longs, it made me realize it was the career path I wanted to take.”
Officer Baker’s father was a Navy veteran, so he understands the sacrifice that our veterans have to make so that we can have the opportunities that we have today. Because of that, he has the utmost respect for the men and women who protect and serve this great country. He wholeheartedly believes that this is the greatest country in the world, and he just wants to do his part to make it a better place for his kids and generations after that.
Officer Baker has become an internet sensation for his humorous videos on social media where he shares the funnier side of what police officers see when they are on patrol. His videos are meant to humanize the badge, bridging the gap between LEO’s and the civilians they serve to protect. Officer Baker hopes to show that police officers laugh and cry just like everyone else and even though they have to be serious when they are out on the streets, they like to have a good time as well. He has said that the following he has amassed on social media is really humbling because he had no idea it was going to grow as quickly as it has. He hopes that his videos and content will encourage people to approach police officers no matter what the reason is, even if it is just to stop and talk.
