Ramund Box takes reigns as new Compton Community College District police chief
COMPTON — The Compton Community College District held a swearing-in ceremony for the new Compton College Police Chief Ramund Box at its regular Board of Trustees meeting, Jan. 15, 2019.
Box assumed the position effective Jan. 1, 2019. Board of Trustees President Dr. Deborah Sims LeBlanc administered the oath of office.
Box’s duties include planning, coordinating, and supervising the daily operations and activities of the College District Police Department, and oversees the district-wide emergency preparedness programs.
Box has been involved 21 years in law enforcement in the State of California. Prior to his new job, Box worked for the El Camino College Police Department, and before that, he was an officer for the Compton College Police Department. He also worked for the Los Angeles World Airport Police Bureau, the Metropolitan State Hospital Police, and was an agent for the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.
Box also served in three branches of the U.S. military — the Marine Corps, Army National Guard, and Army Reserve. He was honorably discharged from the Army Reserves in December 2000.
Box earned a Master of Law degree from Woodbury College in Los Angeles, a Bachelor of Arts in education from Union Institute & University, and an Associate of Arts degree in administration of justice from Compton College.
Upon its opening, the new $4.7 million Public Safety Building will be home to the campus police department in July 2019. The project was made possible by the 2002 Measure CC local general obligation bond.
