The Deputy Sheriffs of Bright Falls, while not against Alan Wake, act as enemies in a section of Episode 3: Ransom.
The entire Bright Falls Sheriff Station is called in by FBI Agent Robert Nightingale after Alan resists arrest. After Alan escapes, most of them are ambushed by Taken and then add to their ranks, fighting against Alan in the next part of the game.
Before they turn into Taken, deputy sheriffs walk the forest where Alan is escaping and wield flashlights and hunting rifles, making them incredibly dangerous if they spot him.
