Hardee County - County Jail - Florida
Hardee County FL Jail

Hardee County Jail is located in the city of Wauchula, Florida which has a population of 4,949 (as of 2013) residents. Hardee County Jail began processing inmates once the original construction was completed and service started in 1921 but may have been expanded or renovated since that time, to accommodate the growing prison population. Prisoners are housed in separate areas depending on the crimes they committed, their current risk assessment, and their behavior. This facility is currently under the supervision of Capt. A. Rigney, Sr. and houses offenders.

If you have a family or loved one that is currently incarcerated at Hardee County Jail, the first thing you should do is contact the prison for information on the inmate. Based on the information you are provided, you would then contact either a criminal defense lawyer or a bail bond service. They will provide you with vital information which can be used to defend an individual and in a lot of cases get them released from detention while awaiting trial.
