Harold Enloe

Chief Harold Enloe was killed in a vehicle accident during a pursuit that came through his jurisdiction. His cruiser went out of control on the rain-slicked roads, and Chief Enloe was ejected.

The driver of the vehicle they were pursuing was charged with reckless driving.

Chief Enloe was a United States Navy veteran who had been with the Asheville Police Department for 14 years and Police Chief for a little over one year. He was a graduate of the FBI Academy. He was survived by his wife and son.

The first FOP lodge in the state was named in Chief Enloe's honor.
