Visitation days are based on the inmate's institution number. Inmate numbers ending with an even number (0,2,4,6,8) will visit on the even numbered dates of the month. Inmate numbers ending with an odd number (1,3,5,7,9) will visit on the odd numbered dates of the month.
Walk-in visitors will be processed on a first come, first serve basis until 1 p.m. daily. Terminations will be on a first in, first out basis.
Visitation periods are "split sessions" with each session counted as a single visit for the month. For example:
- 1st visitation session - 8 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. (1 visit)
- 2nd visitation session - 11:45 a.m. to 3 p.m. (1 visit)
Visitors must arrive before 10 a.m. for the 1st visitation session and 1 p.m. for the 2nd visitation session.
"All Day" visits by the same visitor are counted as two visits for the month.
If the visiting room is at full capacity but additional visitors arrive, the first visitor registered will be terminated and asked to leave before the end of the visitation session. This will be conducted strictly using the visitor sign in log. Visitors will not be given consideration based on the distance they traveled. If a visitation session is terminated early due to crowding, the terminated visitor will have the opportunity to visit during the 2nd visitation session without being charged a second monthly visit.
Only four visitors per inmate can visit at each visitation session. Children aged 2 and above are counted as a visitor toward the total number of visitors regardless of the child's size.
Reservations will be taken from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday by calling (740) 852-1411 and are required the day before and after all state-recognized holidays. Reservations are accepted 30 days in advance and must be made by the person who will be visiting. Visitation is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and all state-recognized holidays.
Any scheduled visits that do not honor the day/time of visitation will be considered a "no show/no call" and will count as one visit.
Approved visitors for Level 2 inmates can visit three times per month for family members and two times per month for friends.
Approved visitors for Level 1 inmates can visit four times per month for family and three times per month for friends.

Due to the high volume of incoming calls and based upon feedback of visitors, the MaCI Visit Department is now offering visitors the ability to make reservations for upcoming visits either by telephone or email. Effective 07-20-17, approved visitors may make a reservation up to 30 days in advance by one of 3 ways:

However, if we have reached our capacity, walk-ins will be terminated based on their order of arrival. After 7/20/2017 walk-ins will no longer be accepted. You must have a reservation.
