The Davidson Co Jail is a detention center located at 5113 Harding Pl Nashville, TN which is operated locally by the Davidson County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Davidson County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Nashville Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.

New detainees arrive at the jail regularly, with some being released on bail, placed under pretrial services caseloads, supervised by probation agencies, or released on recognizance with a court appearance agreement. Those who are not released await their court appearances at the jail, receiving accommodations including bedding and meals. You can see all the arrest records for Tennessee here.

At the CDC, the focus on a variety of efforts to improve the chances inmates does not come back to jail. Two highly acclaimed state-licensed programs operate out of this facility: the Sheriff’s Anti-Violence Effort (SAVE), a treatment program for domestic violence perpetrators; and, New Avenues, a 45-day intensive alcohol and drug treatment program. Our staff works to get to the root of an offender’s cycle of crime and we know that many times the cause is an addiction. Other programs at this facility increase the chance an inmate can become a productive citizen upon release and that is the end goal for us all. Female offender issues are also a priority. Understanding the varying needs of this population, the CDC staff has taken a great stride to design programs, especially for female offenders.
