Post Looking for Visit info @ Turney Center Industrial Complex

Will be going to visit there soon and was just wondering how visits were? I've only been to WTSP, and I know each facility is different (like TCIX has table visits etc) but are the processing procedures and dress code pretty much the same ? How are visitation staff etc ? Thanks in advance!

You can look it up in the policy but it is basically the same all around TN, kinda strict here though

I read through their book, it's the same as wtsp but guess it really all comes down to who's working that day lol that's how it was @ wtsp anyways. I always follow rules regardless to make it easier on myself. Are they good about getting them to the VG quick ? Wtsp was bad about that, sometimes I would be waiting forever for them to let him out.

Are we in the visit room first or is the inmate in there already? Do they have plastic chairs or metal chairs?

So I went to visit my LO this past Sunday. Not a bad experience at all, my only complaint is that their processing of visitors is so SLOW! I arrived right @ 8am, signed the little slip & waited what seemed like forever for my # to be called and then forever again to actually go through the metal detector/pat down etc. By the time I got to the VG it was 8:45 & he was walking in at the exact same time lol I kind of liked that though for this first visit because we haven't seen each other in almost 3 years so it took a little of the anxiety away since I didn't have to sit there and wait forever for him to come out. They have plastic chairs w/ metals legs btw kind of like school chairs, very uncomfortable after 8hrs of sitting but well worth the discomfort!! I didn't have too much interaction with the staff but they seemed alright to me, I didn't see any of them really hounding anyone while in there, I felt like the VG was pretty laid back for the most part. Oh and definitely follow dress code. I almost had to change tops, but I was wearing a cardigan so they let me through thankfully since it covered me up. Apparently my top was see thru to them, but grateful they didn't make me change! Overall it was a pretty decent experience. My favorite thing is that you don't have to walk outside to get to the VG lol looking forward to going back soon!
