Has 21 years experience with U.S. Marshals
FRANKFORT, Ky. (April 21, 2016) — Kenneth F. Bohac has been named the Finance Cabinet’s Inspector General, effective May 2, Finance and Administration Secretary COL William M. Landrum III announced today. Bohac has a 21-year history with the U.S. Marshals Service, most recently serving as U.S. Marshal for Central District of Illinois.
The appointment follows the recent announcement by Gov. Matt Bevin that his administration would undertake a broad investigation into evidence and allegations of widespread public corruption in Kentucky’s executive branch. Over the past four months, preliminary examinations have uncovered evidence that officials in the prior administration have failed to meet the high standards that the law and people of Kentucky demand from state government officials.
Bohac has dedicated his entire law enforcement career to the United States Marshals Service. In 1995 he became a Deputy U.S. Marshal in Chicago, and was promoted to the position of Senior Investigator in the Urbana Office in 1998. Bohac was a member of the Marshals Service’s rapid-response unit known as the Special Operations Group (SOG), and in the past has traveled to Iraq in that capacity.
Prior to joining the U.S. Marshals Service, Bohac worked as an accountant and financial systems analyst for several private companies. Bohac was born in Chicago, and received his B.A. in Accounting from Western Illinois University in 1977, and an M.B.A. from Lewis University in 1988.
