Council Takes Baker Off Probation
April 23, 2008 - Knightstown Chief of Police Danny Baker is no longer on probation.
At last week's Knightstown Town Council meeting, the council voted unanimously to take Baker off probationary status with the Knightstown Police Department. Under the town's personnel policies, all employees are on probationary status for their first six months of employment.
Baker was hired last August as a permanent replacement for former Chief of Police Earl Patterson. The two town council members who serve on the council's police committee recently met for Baker's six-month evaluation.
"We want to acknowledge the fine job he is doing as our police chief," council member Terry Guerin said of Baker at last week's meeting. He said Baker had worked hard to restore credibility and professionalism to the KPD and has been proactive in efforts to improve the department.
"All in all, you're doing a good job, Chief," Guerin told Baker.
Baker thanked the council for their support and commended his officers for their contributions to the department. As a salaried employee, the completion of his probationary period did not bring any increase in pay for the police chief.
