Trousdale Turner Correctional Center

The Trousdale Turner Correctional Center is a private prison for men, located in Hartsville, Trousdale County, Tennessee, owned and operated by CoreCivic (formerly Corrections Corporation of America) under contract with the Tennessee Department of Corrections.[1] The facility opened in 2016, and holds a maximum of 2552 male inmates at medium security.[2] There are seven housing units on the compound each housing different number of inmates. The following, three-pod, housing units each house a maximum of 360 inmates: D, C, F, B and E. Housing unit W contains four pods, each holding a maximum of 128 inmates, for a total of 512. The segregation unit, A, contains five pods with a maximum capacity of 360. Between its opening in January 2016 and May, an inmate was stabbed on February 26 when an officer left a housing unit unattended, the facility's newly-appointed warden resigned by early March without explanation, a TDOC official formally complained that CCA officers had no control over the prisoners, the entire facility unexpectedly halted taking new state inmates because of these "growing pains",[3] and an officer was assaulted. [4] As of 2016, Tennessee houses state inmates in four private prisons.[5] The state's Private Prison Contracting Act of 1986, however, authorizes one single private prison for state inmates.[6] As of 2016 Tennessee technically contracts directly with CoreCivic for inmates held at South Central Correctional Facility. For Trousdale and the two others, the state circumvents the statute by contracting with the local county. In turn the county signs an agreement with CoreCivic.
