Is there a dress code?

According to prisonpro.com, there is a dress code and contact rules for all visitors to Tennessee facilities, and that includes the PCSO Jail.

Dress Code/Contact Rules for Visitors of Tennessee Inmates

Every prison in Tennessee implements a dress code that all visitors must follow.  Remember that visiting your loved one in prison is a privilege and it is up to you to follow the rules. There are not a lot of things you have control over when you are visiting your loved one in prison. This is one rule that you do have control over as you decide what to wear on that day. This is also one of the easiest rules to follow.

The dress code exists in order to preserve the safety and security of the facility, the visitors, the staff, and inmates.  Failure to adhere to the dress code will result in your visit being denied.  Because the dress code is strictly enforced, we recommend you always leave a change of clothing in your car.  This will enable you to quickly change if a staff member disagrees with an article of clothing you are wearing.

  • Clothing that is too large or too small is prohibited.  This includes clothing that exposes excess skin.
  • Visitors must wear appropriate undergarments.  Thongs and water brassieres are considered inappropriate.
  • All visitors must wear shoes.  Steel toed shoes/boots, flip flops, sandals, and shower shoes are prohibited.
  • Shorts and skirts are allowed but they must extend to within three inches or closer of the knee when in a standing position.
  • Spandex and Spandex-like material is not allowed.  This includes all form fitting clothing that accentuates the body.
  • Clothing that is sheer, transparent or see through is not allowed.
  • Any clothing that closely resembles the inmates clothes or the staffs clothes is prohibited.
  • Uniforms such as military or doctors/nurse scrubs are restricted from being worn.
  • Camouflage clothing is not allowed.
  • Clothing that is worn, has holes, tears and rips in it is restricted from visitation.
  • All shirts and blouses must have sleeves.  Sleeveless shirts/blouses are prohibited.
  • Clothing that exposes the midriff, chest, cleavage, back, or thighs are not allowed.
  • Tight clothing such as leggings, tube tops, tank tops, and halter tops are not allowed.
  • If your clothing contains offensive language, images, symbols, or logos you will not be allowed to visit.  This includes references to drugs, alcohol and gangs.
  • Dresses and skirts must come to within three inches or less of the knee.  Slits may not rise above three inches of the knee.
  • Hats, bandanas, and other items that cover the head or the face are not allowed.
  • Layered clothing is prohibited.

 

Bottom line, basic rules to follow:

  • No sleeveless shirts, halter tops, tank tops, revealing or low cut tops
  • No camouflage clothing
  • Beware of certain colors that might be affiliated with local gangs
  • Do not wear same colors as the inmates (so you are not mistaken as an inmate)
  • No Shorts or short dresses
  • No flip-flops

Remember that visiting your loved one in prison is a privilege and it is up to you to follow the rules. There are not a lot of things you have control over when you are visiting your loved one in prison. This is one rule that you do have control over as you decide what to wear on that day. This is also one of the easiest rules to follow.
