The Warrants Unit is charged with ensuring the quality of information contained in various federal, state and local law enforcement databases.

A majority of the Warrants Specialist's tasks involve the entry and quality control of information in systems designed to track arrest warrants, child support warrants and domestic violence restraining orders.

Our Warrants Specialist works closely with the Clerk of Courts Office, the Department of Revenue and the Detention Division to ensure the validity of charges and terms of detention. Our specialist also works with other agencies to place and release holds on subjects arrested in other counties or states on Hardee County charges.

Fingerprinting services are also conducted by our Warrants Unit, as well as answering incoming administrative calls and serving customers at the front window in the Hardee County Sheriff's Office lobby.

Complete background checks can be obtained online on the FDLE website
Local background checks can be requested at the Sheriff's Office.
