Zionsville — Boone County Sheriff Ken Campbell was honored at the Kiwanis meeting Thursday, Nov. 15, with a certificate of appreciation from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Bruce Guider, special agent with the FBI, presented Campbell with the certificate.

Campbell has helped the FBI by giving members of the military basic reserve deputy training that is required to obtain law enforcement credentials to be able to sit on certain task forces and committees.

“I can’t say enough good things about the connectivity we have,” Guider said of Campbell and the sheriff’s office. “Sheriff Campbell helps us out immensely.”

Guider said that Campbell’s streamlined way of providing this training has been looked at as a best practice by the FBI headquarters.

It was Campbell’s second honor of the week, after he was awarded the Richard G. Brown Memorial Law Enforcement Officer of the Year award Monday evening, Nov. 12, at the Boone County Chamber of Commerce’s annual civic banquet.

“This is a great honor for me,” Campbell said. “We’re team players. When bad things happen, you don’t care who helps — whether they’re in a blue shirt, a brown shirt or a black shirt. You just want someone to help.”
