AUBURN — Patrolling central New York streets as law enforcement officers in different municipalities and keeping people safe is second nature for one family — a unique situation for four brothers who are the sons of Patricia and Robert Quigley.

"So, how did ALL of the Quigley boys become law officers?"

"None of them wanted a real job," their dad said, joking. "They were hellers."

Perhaps they take after their maternal grandfather, Charles Lamphere of Skaneateles, who served in the Onondaga County Sheriff's Department for about 12 years under Sheriffs Al Stone and Sarto Major. Or maybe it was their father's work as a former volunteer EMT for the Sennett Fire Department, often involved with the police.

One thing's for sure — their parents' spirit of adventure and hard work have certainly rubbed off.
