Heads up! Effective 11-13-17 we will begin the process of moving items out of our current entrance building. This includes the Offender Connect Money Kiosk. North Central Correctional Complex has granted permission to use their kiosks located in their entrance buildings (main facility and camp). Hours of use are 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM. The facility is located at 670 Marion Wiliamsport RD East. We will begin processing visitors through the gray trailer located by the current entry building on 11-15-17. There are no toilet facilities in the temporary entry building. Plan accordingly as processing for visitation may be more time consuming. Once inside the main facility, restrooms are available for visitor use. The project completion date is estimated at 6 months from the start date of 11-20-17. We request your patience and support as we work to improve the building aesthetics and functional operations.

Video Visitation

Marion Correctional Institution maintains video visiting kiosks in every general population housing unit. The hours of availability for video visits are as follows: 8:30 AM – 10:00AM and 12:00PM – 3:30PM.  Visits are 30 minutes in duration; however, an additional 30 minutes can be requested if there is no one scheduled at the same kiosk immediately after the conclusion of the initial video visit. An approved visitor is defined as: a visitor that submitted an application for visitation, processing has been completed, and approval by institutional staff may request a video visit.

Approved visitors must create an account and  register with JPay. When family members register to have a video visit, they are prompted by JPay through a series of steps to achieve their visit. Video visits must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance of the time that they are requesting. 

Approved visitors may visit www.jpay.com for additional information
