A Message from Sheriff Lanier
New Years Eve Celebration Safety Reminder
The men and women of The Hardee County Sheriff's Office want you to remain safe during the start of 2017.
We encourage people to avoid driving while intoxicated and refrain from discharging weapons in the air as a way of celebrating the arrival of 2017.
If part of your holiday celebrations include consuming alcoholic beverages, plan ahead by not driving while impaired. Use a designated driver.
Some individuals have celebrated by firing a weapon into the air. This is dangerous and illegal. A bullet fired into the air is going to come down and the consequences can be TRAGIC.
Have a Happy & Prosperous New Year!
Arnold Lanier, Sheriff
