Baker native Jarrod Robinson has been representing his hometown and family extremely well as a law enforcement officer in the city of Belgrade and across the entire state of Montana.

Robinson is the son of the late Dana Robinson, and Raenette (Tom) Kendall. He graduated as a Spartan and first served as a police officer to the residents of his own hometown. Robinson accepted a position with the Belgrade Police Department ten years ago this month.

According to his chief, E.J. Clark, Robinson’s co-workers selected him as employee of the year based on several criteria encompassing all aspects of his profession from maintaining a positive public image to his understanding of local laws, to the manner in which he maintains his equipment. Clark described Robinson as, “a hard worker, not a complainer. I’m talking about as well-rounded guy as you can get.”

Robinson’s comments regarding the honor reinforced the accuracy of his peers’ choice, “It’s very humbling and there are other guys who work just as hard as I do. I couldn’t do it without them.”

After being selected as Belgrade’s officer of the year, Robinson’s name and accomplishments were submitted to the American Legion for consideration as Montana’s Officer of the Year, and came out on top. In addition to serving his community as a top-notch officer, Robinson is also kept busy on the home front as a husband and father of two.

This very prestigious award will be presented in Lewistown in June. As a state award recipient, Robinson will now be considered for the American Legion award at the national level.
