BWFH welcomes new Security Operations Manager and Chief of Police

The Police, Security, Safety and Parking Department at Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital is pleased to welcome Paul Baker as its new Security Operations Manager and Chief of Police. In this role, Baker will work closely with Senior Director of Public Safety and Support Services Terrance Lassiter to provide a safe and secure environment for patients, visitors and staff. He will oversee the day-to-day operations of the Security staff, including security officers, special state police officers, charge officers and supervisors.

Baker studied Marketing/Marketing Management at Providence College before deciding on a career in law enforcement. He went on to earn his master’s degree in Criminal Justice/Law Enforcement Administration at Western New England University. For nearly 27 years, he worked for the Massachusetts State Police in a variety of roles, including undercover drug work. For the past 16 years, he has been assigned to the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office, investigating major drug cases, homicides, suicides and more for the county.

Upon his retirement from the State Police, Baker wanted to try something new. “Over the years, I’ve been in a lot of emergency departments as an observer and seen the organized chaos that is their world. I don’t know how they get their mission done, but they always do,” he says. “The opportunity to improve the support we provide to that team is a major motivator for me.”

Outside of work, Baker is adjusting to having more free time. “I’ve worked 70 or 80 hours a week on a regular basis for the last 26 years and 7 months,” he says. Now, with a somewhat more standard work schedule, he plans to spend more time hiking and working on yard projects. He particularly enjoys stonework and woodwork.
