In July of 1998, Harry was given the unique opportunity to serve with the Dallas Police Department. He started his career serving as a patrol officer and was quickly promoted to Senior Corporal. After his promotion, Harry was transferred to one of the cities toughest areas where he developed a knack for arresting violent criminals and drug dealers.
In 2006 Harry was selected as a Detective to join a street-level narcotic team. For the next two years, Harry and his team would primarily investigate low level drug dealers and conduct dynamic entry search warrants at “Trap and Stash Houses.” In an effort to reinvent himself and to gain more experience investigating long term cases, Harry applied for and was accepted to the Vice Division. His primary duties were investigating and arresting prostitutes, pimps, and criminals responsible for human traffickers.
In 2008 Harry was presented with yet another opportunity to stretch and grow his undercover career by being selected to the Dallas Police Department’s elite Mid-Level Narcotic Team.
In 2009, while working in an undercover capacity, Harry and his partners were able to infiltrate a violent drug trafficking organization, posing as large-scale drug traffickers. During our "initiation stage", we were targets of the violence perpetrated by the gang members. Firearms were repeatedly utilized and brandished by the gang members during undercover transactions, in an effort to intimidate Harry and his team. On each occasion, they utilized superior tactics and techniques to safely walk away from the dangerous situations we encountered. As a result of the 2-year undercover operation, 28 violent gang members were removed from the community they preyed upon.
In 2012 Harry Haynes was promoted to Sergeant and transferred back to patrol where he served for 2 years as a Patrol Sergeant, but his desire to pursue drug dealers drew him back to the Narcotics Division.
