Highlands County is situated in south central Florida, northwest of Lake Okeechobee. It is bordered on the east by the Kissimmee River, and has a total area of 1,106. It was created in 1921 from a portion of DeSoto County. As of 2010, the population was 98,786, with one third of the residents age 65 or above, making it the fifth oldest population in the United States. The county takes its name from the gently rolling hills of the area, contrasting with the flat topography of much of the rest of the state. In addition to tourism, the production of oranges and beef is important in the county.

The county seat is Sebring, established in 1912 by George E Sebring. The founder was a pottery manufacturer and developer from Ohio, where there is also a town named for him. The oldest city in the county is Avon Park, incorporated in 1886 and named after Stratford-upon-Avon in England.

The county boasts of over a dozen golf courses and more than 84 lakes offering opportunities for boating, sailing, skiing, and fishing. There are many resort and retirement communities. The Sebring International Raceway is a grand prix style racecourse built on part of a former Air Force training base used during World War II. The rest of the base is used as an airport. The Air Force still maintains an active bombing range and air-ground training complex in the county, Avon Park Air Force Range.

The Highlands County Jail is under the direction of the Detention Bureau of the Sheriff’s Office. Located at 338 South Orange Street, Sebring, Florida 33870, the facility was built in 1956. It has a capacity of 512 inmates, including males and females. The average daily population of the jail is 384 prisoners.
