New officer for Beulah, Adam Baker
By Kate Johnson
Beulah Police Department gains a fifth police officer with the hire of Adam Baker.
Baker is originally from New Rockford, and enlisted in the National Guard when he was only 17 years-old.
He joked that he initially signed up for the guard for college money; however, when 9-11 occurred Baker was quick to re-enlist.
From there Baker did two tours and was in Afghanistan for two years. What started out as a potential college savings fund has turned into a 20 year career. While being enlisted and working around deployments, Baker took on many different jobs.
While working at the elevator in Washburn, he met his wife Ashley Baker. Her career took them to Fargo, and she encouraged Baker to follow his dreams of being a police officer.
