SBI Leadership

SBI Director Bob Schurmeier

Bob Schurmeier was sworn in as the Director of the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation in July of 2016.  Schurmeier grew up in Charlotte and later attended UNC-Chapel Hill.  After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in political science, Schurmeier joined the Charlotte Police Department.  That agency became the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD) in 1993, merging the Charlotte Police Department with the Mecklenburg County Police Department.
 
Schurmeier spent 21 years in the upper command ranks of CMPD.  He served as Deputy Chief of police for more than 11 years.  He also served as Interim Chief of police for six months.  Schurmeier gained experience in all four major commands of the department, but spent most of his time in the Patrol, Investigations, and Vice and Narcotics Divisions.  While at CMPD, he was an active member of the North Carolina Police Executives Association and the North Carolina Chapter of the FBI National Academy Associates.  He served as president for a time, for both associations.
 
Schurmeier has more than 3,000 hours of law enforcement training.  He is a graduate of the Senior Management Institute for Police, (2nd Session); the FBI National Academy, (159th Session); and the Secret Service Dignitary Protection School.
 
After a full career with CMPD, Schurmeier co-founded US ISS Agency LLC -- a security and investigative consulting business in Charlotte.  With others, Schurmeier grew the business to a successful enterprise with offices in Huntersville, N.C., Charleston, S.C., and Miami, Fla.  The business was established on the foundation of integrity, knowledge and experience.
 
Schurmeier is incredibly grateful for his appointment as SBI Director and the confidence shown in him by the General Assembly and the Governor’s Office.  He hopes to apply the experience he has gained in founding and growing a small start-up business and more than two decades of law enforcement management expertise, to improve, streamline and support the SBI.
