Millions more people plan on spending Thanksgiving out of town this year, according to AAA.

Tennessee Tops for Combating Human Trafficking
Thursday November 16, 2017

Shared Hope International has ranked Tennessee number one in the country for fighting human trafficking. That's according to the TBI.
The 2017 report card gave Tennessee a 96.5 rating.
The report pointed out one flaw. It said Tennessee imposes substantial penalties for sex trafficking and provides tools for law enforcement to investigate effectively, but victims may be deterred from pursuing justice due to a lack of trial protections and potential bars to victims' compensation.
TBI Director and McMinnville native Mark Gwyn said the progress Tennessee has made over the past five years is significant and proves the value of partnership.
Gwyn said his office will not rest but will keep working until that score is 100%.

 


Lawmakers Irked at State Corrections
AP Thursday November 16, 2017

Tennessee lawmakers have criticized state corrections officials after an audit found some private prisons were understaffed and their staffing information at times was incorrect or withheld.
After a round of questioning Wednesday, a state legislative panel voted to temporarily delay reauthorizing the Department of Correction, calling for officials first to testify again next month about CoreCivic's prison contracts.
The comptroller's audit found Trousdale Turner Correctional Center and Whiteville Correctional Facility were consistently short-staffed, including in correctional officers.
House Democratic Caucus Chairman Mike Stewart said corrections officials haven't investigated enough about whether problems go beyond the audit.
