My name is Bryan Harkey and I have been employed with the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department – Animal Care & Control Division for 20 years. When I began my career in 1999, I started as a field officer. I served many years as Enforcement Supervisor overseeing day to day enforcement business. I currently hold the Lead Enforcement Supervisor position which manages the entire enforcement section of our operation.
Throughout my career, I have worked with several different programs and teams such as the Hazardous Materials team, the Large Animal Response Team, and the Emergency Response Team. I have supervised two emergency response deployments in 2017 and 2018. I oversee Fleet for our division which includes the enforcement officer vehicles, the emergency response trailers, the livestock trailers, and our offsite adoption equipment. I manage our chemical immobilization program for enforcement officers and hold CET certification.
