Lawmakers To Allow TDOC To Continue Running Prisons
WSMV Wednesday December 13, 2017

Lawmakers, frustrated with the Tennessee Department of Correction and the private prison company Core Civic, still voted to allow the agency to continue running prisons for another year.
The vote came after a legislative hearing where Core Civic was once again criticized by lawmakers and a former correctional officer.
The authorization by lawmakers also opens up the agency to further audits.
Ashley Dixon, a former corrections officer at the Trousdale Turner Correctional Center, testified that she had to endure days of hearing one inmate weep for medication.
A scathing audit of the Trousdale prison was released last month.
TDOC Commissioner Tony Parker testified that his office is closely monitoring Core Civic's contract and is launching a re-audit of the Trousdale location.
