Change In Intake Procedure

Effective Monday June 1, 2020 we will be changing our inmate intake procedure.

Each week we will ONLY take intake on the following days and times listed below.

  • Wednesday, 12PM – 4PM

  • Saturday, 12PM – 4PM

Inmate Visitation Regulation

Visitation for all inmates must be scheduled through the receptionist. No walk-in visitation will be allowed. Each inmate is allowed one 1-hour visit per week with up to three people allowed on that visit.

We supply all hygiene items and shower shoes for inmates. Inmates are allowed to receive the following items:

Initial Intake

  • 5 white t-shirts (crew neck, no pockets, no logos)

  • 5 white underwear (boxers are allowed)

  • 5 white pairs of socks

  • 2 pairs of white or off-white thermal underwear

  • 5 sports bras (no wire)

Weekly Intake (*to be brought in on visitation day ONLY)

  • 5 envelopes

  • 5 stamps

  • 5 sheets of notebook paper

Inmates are allowed to make phone calls. In order for this to be set up properly, please contact:
Securus 24/7 Phone Number: 1 (800) 844-6591

Or phone cards may be purchased in the lobby vending machine for $10 and $20. These may be picked up once per day.


If you are one minute late according to the Hardin County Correctional clock, you will not be allowed to visit. Best practice is to check in with the receptionist at least five minutes prior to your appointment time. We do not accept same day visits, you must schedule your visit prior to the visitation day.

Tennessee SAVIN

Tennessee SAVIN is a free and confidential automated service provided by the Tennessee Sheriffs’ Association that allows victims to track the custody status of offenders using a telephone and/or the internet. You may register by phone, text, or email to receive notifications if and when an offender dies, escapes, transfers, or is released.


  • Your registration is absolutely confidential- the offender will not know that you are registered with this service.

  • SAVIN only provides custody information for offenders in the state of Tennessee.

  • Because the service is automated, you will be notified as soon as an offender’s custody status changes, which may be at any hour of the day or night.

Register by phone: 888-868-4631 or online:

You must register separately for each type of notification and, if registering by phone, create a PIN that you will use to confirm when you receive a notification. If your phone number or email address changes, you must call or visit the website to update your information.
