Yes, he will earn good time credits depending on his custody level and if he is working or taking classes or programs. He needs to bug the crap out of the counselors. They were not helpful to my husband there either, but he bugged them til they gave him his answers. ha ha

But he has said there are quite a few things for him to do - he has found books to read - plenty of work out equipment and he knew some people there. He said that comissary is ok, I am waiting on the info to order him a package and to find out if I can mail him his TV back from a previous incarceration. I was told as long as it came from TDOC that they could have it back. He says that SCCF is one of the better places to be b/c it is a older crowd and more trades and educational programs. Hopefully visitation forms will be coming home soon since he was just transferred there about a week ago. I would love to have some other people to meet that are going through the same things and can relate to having a loved one at SCCF, please feel free to email me.
I don't know if I'm even writing in the right place but you seem to be a nice person. You talked about a TV. Can they have a TV in their cell? If so, what size? I would like to get my brother one. He was recently moved there from Charles Bass. How do you get a visitation application? I live iin Florida so it's hard to find out anything. I would appreciate your help.

Hi everyone,
I usually am on here everyday but I don't seem to take the time to post. I am sorry. My son has been as SCCF for over 2 years now. If there is anything you need to know about the place I can probably help. You can have a TV in your cell along with radio, headphones, games, cards, books, magazines, clock,. There is a website that you can order your brother stuff from every 3 months. My son was also at CBCX for about 6 months before going to SCCF. You can go on the TN official web site at Tennessee department of corrections and look up SCCF prison and it shows all the rules, regulations, visitation. Anything you need to know. Global is the best for phone. I spend about $50 a month a talk to my son about 5 times a week. I go see him every Sunday. Visits are pretty laid back. We never have any issues but we always follow all the rules. If you do the guards do not bother you. They are stricter than they use to be. They also do not have cookouts at the Annex either. The inmates are not allowed to get up from their table except to use the restroom. They are not allowed at the vending machines or to use the microwave. They use to. The website to order a package for your brother is www.tninmatepackage.com. Word of advise, figure out what you want to order, then call the 888 number to place the order and make sure you get a confirmation number. If you order it on line and they are out of something it does not tell you and then your order is put on hold until they get everything. It could take weeks for him to get it. It usually ships out within 24 hours and takes about 7 business days for them to get it. Do not order any of the new items that have to do with wrist bands or knee wraps. The prison will make him ship it back or send the whole order back. I made that mistake last month. Thought it was cool that they had new items and then they can't even use them. Anyway, I hope I have been of some help. Let me know if you have any other questions.
TT

My husband spent almost 2 years at SCCF (twice). There are alot of gangs there. It is run by CCA and so the guards seem to be 'wanna be cops'. They tightened up the visit rules. You have to sit where they tell you, across the table from each other. You can hold hands but inmates cannot get up except to go to the bathroom. And yes, you can send them a tv they had at another facility. You can also order books from Amazon.com and send them to the inmates. they get alot of freedom to use the phones too, which is good. Also, the TN inmate package that heartbrokenmom mentioned has the approved tv, radios, etc. that you can order every 3 months.

Yes, you can visit both days and for the entire time (if the kids can stay still that long--haha). Just remember to stay sitting at your assigned table except if you have to go to the bathroom or to vending machines. And kids can't sit on your hubby's lap.

They don't allow kids to play in the playroom anymore. they have to stay at the table with you, and they cannot sit on your husband's lap. He can give them a hug and a kiss upon and arrival and departure. Some prisons do have playrooms and outside visits, but NOT South Central!!!

It looks like my husband got sent to the wrong prison to bring kids to!!!!! I was gonna bring them for half the day and then let my mom take them out, if they allow that. Does anyone know the area? I need to find a hotel and some stuff for the kids to do.

It doesn't usually take too long to get through the checkpoint. Just depends on how busy they are, but usually about 15 minutes. Just make sure you arrive before 10 because once they start doing count, you will not be allowed in til they are done. If your mom leaves with the kids, they will have to leave prison property. There is a motel not far from the prison. I didn't know where you were staying while visiting. The town of Clifton is really tiny and there's nothing really to do! So far, the best prison I've seen for visiting children is Riverbend! And the only way to get in there is to be a death row or max inmate, or know someone and get on a staff job there (like my husband did)!!! South Central isn't too bad for the inmates, but when you visit, the guards WILL enforce their rules.

Columbia is closer than Nashville. There is not any good way to get from Nashville to Clifton. I am sure there is a hotel in Waynesboro, but.........There are a couple of nicer ones in Lawrenceburg, less than a couple of hours from Clifton. Just check out a map of the area and see what is close. Truth be told, Clifton is not an easy drive from anywhere. It is a tiny little wide spot on the banks of the Tennessee River.

Columbia is almost 2 hours from Clifton. Small town. Lawrenceburg is about an hour away. Waynesboro is in the same county as the prison and about 30 minutes drive. There is a motel that is almost brand new called the Hurricane Inn, in Waynesboro. Rates are reasonable. The Bear Inn is the closest motel to the prison (about 5 minutes away) and runs about $89/night. You have to drive alot of country roads to get to the prison , so I'd suggest to stay pretty close so you don't get lost! The Bear Inn has a pool, continental breakfast & snacks all day. Make sure you have all your ducks in a row before you make that 14 hour drive!! Confirm that everyone is on the visit list, and be sure you all dress according to their rules. Otherwise they will turn you away and you'll have to run to the dollar store and buy something else to wear!

My husband is being shipped back to South Central. I think he's probably on the bus this morning. I am SO MAD at him for getting a write up and losing his job and trustee status. But.. what can I do? Not much. Just deal with it. I hate South Central. Visits suck so bad compared to Riverbend. argghh....

Sorry to hear that. I know it was much easier to visit Riverbend than it is SCCF.

My husband is there for I think the 4th time (ugh). I don't particularly like it, but he has learned how to live there. There are alot of gangs and racial tension, poplulation seems to be mostly guys 20s-40s. Not old guys like at Riverbend! My husband has a new cellie who is young and first time in prison, so he will show him the ropes. I would be scared if I were there! Visitation sucks. The guards tell you where to sit, and you must sit across from the inmate. The inmate can't get up unless they have to go to the bathroom. You have to get the food from the vending machines for them. You can hug and kiss when you arrive and leave, and hold hands over the table. The food in the chow hall is horrible. They serve only turkey (every way you can possibly make it). My husband did gain about 50 lbs in prison though, so at least he got back to a normal healthy weight. They have weights, basketball, volleyball when they have rec time. Its pretty easy to get on the phones there too. Unlike in classification, they can make a 30 minute call (through Global Tel-Link). My husband is always able to call back if we are not done talking in the 30 minutes. The prison is way out in the middle of nowhere, but it's a scenic drive.

The guards are very nice as long as you follow the rules. I have been going for almost 3 years and have never had any problems. The longest it has every taken to get into visit is about an hours. My son was very young, probably the youngest when he went in. You learn to adapt. Tell your son to keep himself busy. It makes the time go by faster. They have soccer and softball teams, weights, basketball, volleyball. The guys play cards alot also. My son is involved in all the above and he keep himself very busy. You can have books sent in from Amazon.com or somewhere like that. He can also get magazine subscriptions. It's best to find a few people to hang with and keep it a small group.
Don't ever get into the position that he borrows from someone else. That can cause lots of issues in prison. My son goes up for parole in a few weeks. Also the parole board likes to see that the inmate takes it upon himself to enroll in classes such as anger management, RDAP, subtance abuse, and such. It looks better if it is not parole recommended. It shows the inmate is trying to better himself and not made to do it. Anyway, if you have any other questions, please IM me, I would be more than happy to answer any questions. Also, he can get a package from www.tnpackage.com every 3 months.

My son called tonight and I read your post to him. He said to tell you that he really appreciated it! He seems to be more relaxed about going there. He thinks they will take him on Friday.Do you know how quickly he can call me, recieve mail, get commisary? Will they transfer his commisary money from Charles Bass there?

He said that he heard from someone there that you have to walk in lines??

The guards tell you where to sit, and you must sit across from the inmate. The inmate can't get up unless they have to go to the bathroom. You have to get the food from the vending machines for them. You can hug and kiss when you arrive and leave, and hold hands over the table. The food in the chow hall is horrible. They serve only turkey (every way you can possibly make it). My husband did gain about 50 lbs in prison though, so at least he got back to a normal healthy weight. They have weights, basketball, volleyball when they have rec time. Its pretty easy to get on the phones there too. Unlike in classification, they can make a 30 minute call (through Global Tel-Link). My husband is always able to call back if we are not done talking in the 30 minutes. The prison is way out in the middle of nowhere, but it's a scenic drive.

My son works out everyday there in the yard. He lifts heavy and my son is much younger than your son. But if you IM me I will give you more info. The gangs are bad there but just stay away from them, don't owe anyone any money and find some guys that are older there. They don't usually have the attitudes that some of the younger ones have. Not all are that way. My son runs with older guys, some that are lifers. That have helped him a lot. Let me know when he gets there what pod he is in. Such as Columbia, Discovery, Enterprise, and such. He should be able to call as soon as he gets there, he can get commissary ASAP and letters. He can use the phone for 30 minutes but sometimes you have to wait for awhile to get to the phone. He also can shower everyday and they are closed showers, meaning its not one big room they have seperate showers. The guards in visitation are nice. The older guy, Joyce, is real helpful but don't try to pull anything, nothing gets by him. There are vending machines and snack machines. You have to buy a card for $5 and then you can put money on it. Hope this helps.
