K-9 Units

Hardee County Sheriff's Office has four "tracking trained" K-9s assigned to the uniform patrol division, one of which is still a puppy.  They are trained for tracking missing, lost or abducted children and adults. They are also utilized to track down fugitives. The K-9s are on shift patrol and share "on-call" responsibilities.  These are the only tracking K-9s in the county and are often called upon to assist by the other law enforcement agencies in Hardee County.


Hardee County Sheriff's Office has a history of effective K-9 application.  K-9's are more than a "tool" for law enforcement, they are a partner to their handler and this partner has only one goal, to "Protect and Serve".

What may be "man's best friend" is often an officer's
"best bet for survival"!
