Former Police Chief Honored

Albany - Albany City Commissioners pause to recognize a former Albany Police Asst. Chief who's battling pancreatic cancer.

Bob Boren retired in 2005 after 18 years of service. Tuesday morning, Commissioners passed a resolution recognizing the contributions Boren made at the Albany Police Department, especially his role in the construction of the Law Enforcement Center.

Boren wasn't able to attend the meeting, because he's in the hospital, but his wife Priscilla received the acknowledgement on his behalf.  She said, "He loved the Albany Police Department.  He loved the city of Albany.  When we came here, he said, 'I'm not going anywhere else, this is my home.' And we will be burying him here because this is the town he loved so much."

Priscilla Boren said her husband was dedicated to the construction of the Law Enforcement Center because he wanted a clean, safe structure officers would be proud to work in.
