The $140 million, 2,552-bed medium-security male prison, which has been under construction since the fall, will employ as many as 400 people when at full capacity. Current jobs range from accountants and correction officers to mailroom clerks and more.
CCA started posting key positions in June and made more positions available as of last week. Earlier this year, CCA announced that Todd Thomas, who currently leads a CCA prison in Arizona, will serve as Trousdale-Turner’s warden. The facility is expected to be complete and ready for inmates by late 2015/early 2016 and will be operated under a five-year contract.
The prison, which is being built after years of delays in the PowerCom Industrial Center, the site of a mothballed Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) nuclear power plant, is expected to draw many of its employees from Trousdale and neighboring counties, including Smith, Macon, Sumner, Wilson and DeKalb, Charly Lyons, executive director of Four Lake Industrial Development Authority, told the UCBJ in September. PowerCom is overseen by Four Lake, which promotes commerce in the five-county area.
