The Tennessee forum would probably be a better place to receive information specifically addressing Tennessee county jails.

I am sorry for AND I understand your anguish!! Tennessee is NOT known for doing anything "right". Once a person meets an officer ALL BETS/RIGHTS are OFF in this PODUNK state. I wish/pray you all well, but this is going to be a ride No-one can expect!!! HORRID STATE is Tennessee all the way from the bottom----up!!!!

Seems like this must be the norm everywhere. Hang in there mom.

What good would that do? Here's how that went down in another jail, LA county. "Asking" like this could catch a ticket or worse in a badly run jail.

One lady, who hadnít been allowed to shower for a week, began banging on her door, yelling at the guards. Others joined in, and the group became so vocal that deputies were unable to turn a blind eye any longer. Reluctantly, they sent a guy around to sign people up. He asked me how many days Iíd gone without a shower. I told him four. He said it wasnít long enough, as some women hadnít showered in a week. This apathetic attempt to console me failed, and I banged on the door until I got a shower.

It was just a suggestion, not all jails are the same. Everyone who works at jails/prisons has different ways of doing things & different personalities. Come on now.
