State Prison Visitation

TDOC prisons are smoke-free environments.

Firearms, weapons, drugs and alcohol are strictly prohibited on the property.


Contraband

The Tennessee Department of Correction does NOT tolerate and aggressively pursues every means possible to prevent the introduction of DRUGS and CONTRABAND into our prisons.

If you try to bring contraband inside our prisons,  you will face harsh consequences including:

  • Permanent loss of visitation privilege
  • Posting of a substantial bond to get out of jail
  • Forfeiture of vehicle if contraband is found inside
  • Payment to an attorney to defend you at trial
  • A felony record
  • Loss of privilege of possessing a firearm

The Department of Correction will pursue criminal prosecution against both visitors and staff that refuse to adhere to the law.

The introduction of contraband is a serious threat to the safety and security of Tennessee prisons. The TDOC takes its responsibility as part of the law enforcement community very seriously.

CONTRABAND ARRESTS


TDOC Visitation

Most TDOC offenders are allowed to visit with friends and family, provided they fill out the appropriate paperwork and follow the departmental policies and procedures.

To familiarize yourself with the rules, please refer to the visitation policy. A visitation form will need to be filled out in its entirety in order to be placed on an offender's list. Applications are processed on a regular basis at each facility, but at least quarterly.

When visiting a TDOC prison, vehicles must be secured in the parking lot.  Secured includes all doors locked and all windows rolled completely up.  Animals may not be left in a vehicle with a window cracked.  Failure to fully secure your vehicle may result in your visit being denied.  

Visitation is considered a privilege, not a right.
