Both Campbell and Apple are 41 years old.
Sheriff Campbell said his son is not his only relative in law enforcement. His other son, James T. Campbell, is a criminal investigator with the department and his son-in-law Adam Hornick is a detective with the Bethlehem Police Department.
The Albany County Sheriff's Department has more than 700 members, with more than 100 in law enforcement, Sheriff Campbell said.
"Both of these individuals have played an instrumental role in projecting our department in becoming a high profile, progressive and professional department," Sheriff Campbell said. "Both of these individuals are career law enforcement officers, and they possess the experience, leadership qualities and positive work ethic that are a prerequisite for the position they will work in," he said.""
