Reflections for Superintendent Hilary Baker

Much like the peace officers of America in 2020/2021, who have continued to serve every day during COVID—many of them dying as a result of their duty to others—Superintendent Baker stayed at his post, and in doing so, gave his life to carry out his duties during an epidemic. Thank you for your service to your community, state, and country.

Superintendent Baker, on this 122nd anniversary of your untimely departure I’d like to reiterate the previous reflections left for you and say thank you. Your selfless acts and service to the Philadelphia community were a segue for the amazing police department that the Philadelphia Police is and for the amazing men and women who would go onto serve. Rest in peace always sir.
