As Undersecretary, Harboe had to take the oath of office of the new ministers during the change in administrations on March 11, 2006.

His main areas of specific work have been controlling major protests, like the 2006 student protests in Chile, strikes, unemployment, and anything else that threatens public order. Before the creation of the National Intelligence Agency of Chile ("Agencia Nacional de Inteligencia de Chile"), Harboe supervised the Public Security and Information Department ("Dirección de Seguridad Pública e Informaciones", known as "La Oficina"). Currently he coordinates the work of the "Carabineros" and the Police Investigations (the Forces of Order and Security, "Fuerzas de Orden y Seguridad") to fight crime.
