The Information Technology Department supports all County departments ensuring proper electronic information management, security, and automated solutions which allow staff members to be efficient with all tasks within their respective positions across the county. Including Animal Care & Control Shelter, County Attorney, Emergency Management, Finance, Human Resources, Judge Executive, EMS stations, and Road Department.
While the main focus is on employee access and operation, the IT Department also oversees citizen-facing services, such as TextMyGov, YouTube, and Hardin County Government webpage.
