As of 2016, Tennessee houses state inmates in four private prisons. [3] The state's Private Prison Contracting Act of 1986, however, authorizes one single private prison for state inmates. [4] As of 2016 Tennessee technically contracts directly with CoreCivic (formerly Corrections Corporation of America (CCA)) for inmates held at South Central Correctional Facility. For Hardeman County and two others, the state circumvents the statute by contracting with the local county. In turn the county signs an agreement with CoreCivic. [5]

Geographic coordinate system Coordinate system

A geographic coordinate system is a coordinate system that enables every location on Earth to be specified by a set of numbers, letters or symbols. The coordinates are often chosen such that one of the numbers represents a vertical position and two or three of the numbers represent a horizontal position; alternatively, a geographic position may be expressed in a combined three-dimensional Cartesian vector. A common choice of coordinates is latitude, longitude and elevation. To specify a location on a plane requires a map projection.
