Sheriff Bill Phillips joined the jail administration for the presentation of the certificate recognizing their renewed accreditation status on December 6, 2023, in Lebanon, TN.

Tennessee Corrections Institute (T.C.I.) representatives awarded the certificate during a ceremony at the agency’s meeting of the Board of Directors, citing that the Sequatchie County Justice Center was one of only five facilities across the state to earn the status last year in the accreditation’s inaugural year, and commended them for maintaining the standards required to retain the achievement for another year.

“Congratulations to all our jail staff for their continued hard work and professionalism. Their accomplishments continue to make us proud”, said Sheriff Phillips.
