Is there a site where you can check for Inmates in Tenneesse Prisons

Whether the person is sent to the local jail or a Tennessee Department of Correction Prison will depend on the length of sentence to serve. The time length varies in each county based on county population. In Davidson County sentences over six years in length are sent to TDOC Prison. Under six years are sent to CCA, a privately run facility here in Davidson County.

This is a website where you can find inmates:
