Hardee County is located southeast of Tampa in south central Florida in the Peace River Valley. Established in 1921, it was named in honor of Governor Cary A. Hardee, who was in office at that time. As of the 2010 census, 27,731 residents called the county’s 638 square miles home. About a quarter of the population falls below the poverty line. Over a third of the residents are Hispanic or Latino. The county seat is Wauchula.

Agriculture is important to the county’s economy, with over 85% of the land devoted to farming. At one time, Wauchula was called the “Cucumber Capital of the World”, but citrus crops have become more important in recent years. Other important ventures are beef and dairy production, timber, fruit and vegetable farming, and phosphate mining for use in fertilizer and animal feeds.

The Sheriff’s Office runs the Detention Facility, or jail, which was opened in 1993 and designed to house up to 190 male, female, and juvenile inmates. The facility is located at 900 East Summit Street, Wauchula, Florida 33873. To schedule a visit with an inmate, it is necessary to call the Detention Division at 863-767-9042 at least 24 hours prior to the visit. Inmates have access to a library and adult education classes. The website provides answers to many questions.

Also located in the county, the Hardee Correctional Institution is a state-run facility housing as many as 1,541 adult male inmates. The Institution opened in 1991 and is located at 6901 State Road 62, Bowling Green, Florida 33834. The prison provides close, medium, minimum, and work release custody, and Hardee Work Camp is under the supervision of the Institution. Adult basic education and GED classes are available to the inmates. A vocational training program in carpentry is also offered. To inquire about visitation or get information on an inmate, visit the website of the Florida Department of Corrections, or call the facility at 863-767-4500.

Called 2 days before I arrived. Was told I would get a call back 2 times. Never got a call back. I had to drive 1.5 hours away. Was advised by my attorney to go to this town. He than proceeded to tell us that we seemed sketchy and that it was weird that we were there WHEN WE WERE TOLD TO GO THERE BY MY ATTORNEY. Than he lies to us and says he's the only bail bondsmen in town. This is not true AT ALL. We had cash in hand. Bad business. If you wanna feel less than a person go here. AVOID if you need help. Go to 'A Bustin Out Bail Bonds' worked with us and solved the same day. And yes it's in the same town! Good luck!
