South Central Correctional Facility

South Central Correctional Facility is a privately run, medium-security prison located in Clifton, Wayne County, Tennessee. This prison is operated and administered by CoreCivic (formerly Corrections Corporation of America) under contract to the Tennessee Department of Correction.[1] As of 2016, Tennessee houses state inmates in four CoreCivic prisons.[2] The state's Private Prison Contracting Act of 1986, however, authorizes a single private prison for state inmates.[3] As of 2016 Tennessee technically contracts directly with CoreCivic only for inmates held at South Central. For the three other facilities, the state circumvents its statute by contracting with the local county. In turn the county signs an agreement with CoreCivic.
