Technical Assistance

The Tennessee Corrections Institute provides technical assistance to facilities which includes the fourteen (14) areas of jail inspections as listed in the Minimum Standards. These areas comprise the scope of required expertise of the facility specialists. The goal is to aid specific facility management in meeting the requirements of the standards in question. However, in any circumstance which calls for additional expertise, the staff of the Tennessee Corrections Institute will request the assistance of the National Institute of Corrections, The American Correctional Association, the National Sheriffs' Association, or any other agency within national, state, or local government which may supply the agency or their personnel with any additional help.
