Sunday Interview: Police Chief Ricky Boren

The plan more than 40 years ago was for Ricky Boren, Columbus College degree in hand, to become an accountant. That was before he interviewed for a job with the Columbus Police Department in 1971. More than 42 years later, Boren is now in his 10th year as chief of a department with almost 500 officers. As a young detective, he was involved in investigating many of the city’s most notorious crimes, including the Stocking Stranglings. Boren sat down for an interview with Ledger-Enquirer reporter Chuck Williams. Here are excerpts of that interview, with some of the questions edited for length and the order of some of the questions rearranged for clarity.
