Former APD assistant chief dies

February 28, 2008

Albany --  Fifty-seven-year old Bob Boren, the former assistant police chief and interim chief, died last Wednesday after a lengthy battle with pancreatic cancer.

Boren served in law enforcement in Georgia for 33 years. He was instrumental in building the new Law Enforcement Center downtown.

Law enforcement leaders say Boren was a leader in the community.

Dougherty District Attorney Ken Hodges  said of Boren: "[He] was well respected among all of his colleagues statewide. I never ran across anyone who didn't have something good to say about Bob. He was deeply committed to victims of crime, and deeply committed to making sure that the law enforcement organization that he ran was a professional one, and they got the job done."

Bob Boren's funeral will be held at 11 AM Saturday at Kimbrell Stern with interment to follow at Crown Hill Cemetery.

Boren was a long time youth baseball coach and many of his former players will serve as pall bearers.
