How do I find out information on an inmate in your facility?
For information on who is in the facility and what they are charged with call 615-790-5570. The
deputy who answers the telephone will be able to give bond amounts and basic information on how to gain the release of inmates. It can take several hours from the time the inmate is accepted into the facility before fingerprints and a mug shot are taken. Inmates cannot make bond until the entire intake process is complete. The amount of time that is required varies with the number of persons arrested and the cooperation of each inmate.
When will an inmate get released?
Release dates for inmates who are being released as “time served” may be received by calling 615-790-5570 and asking for Classifications, Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm. Release dates for inmates who are being released to another agency or correctional facility will NOT be provided, for security reasons.
Can we deliver a message to an inmate?
Due to the number of inmates our facility houses we are not able to deliver messages. If you have a true emergency, ask for the shift supervisor and inform them of your situation.

You can bring medication into the front lobby for an inmate. The medication must be in the original pharmacy issued container. The doctor is the one who approves medication in our facility so bringing it in is NOT a guarantee that the inmate will receive it.
