Hardee County is a type 4, 911 system consisting of one Primary PSAP and one backup PSAP in Hardee
county and portions of Polk County. The Primary PSAP is located at the Hardee County Sheriff’s
Department in Wauchula and direct dispatches for the Sheriff’s Department plus the municipalities of
Wauchula, Bowling Green, and Zolfo Springs police departments. The backup PSAP is located at the
Wauchula Police Dept. The backup PSAP will remain inactive and should the primary PSAP need to be
evacuated for any reason; the back-up PSAP becomes the center of operations for the primary PSAP,
remaining under the management of the Hardee County Sheriff’s Office.
