The Tennessee Department of Correction has risen as a model in the country for its administration practices and cost-sparing measures since getting one of the main correctional frameworks in the nation to be completely certified in 1994. Since that time, every segment of the framework has been re-certifying in a three-year cycle by the American Correctional Association.
The department's crucial consistently been to work sheltered and secure penitentiaries to upgrade open wellbeing in Tennessee through imprisonment and recovery of lawful offense offenders. The strategy extended in 2012 to incorporate giving viable network supervision of grown-up offenders to guarantee open security dependent on the exchange of probation and parole supervision and network adjustment award program capacities from the BOP to the TDOC.
This change is basic to the consistent supervision of criminals in Tennessee, regardless of whether they are on post-trial supervision, detained in jail, on parole, or under the supervision of one of the network corrections organizations. The department is attempting to guarantee consistent supervision of offenders from the moment they enter the state framework through their arrival to the network and the inevitable finish of their sentence.
