Dayton Correctional Institution maintains video visiting kiosks in every general population housing unit. The hours of availability for video visits are as follows: 8:00 AM – 10:00AM; 12:30PM – 3:00PM; and 5:30PM – 8:30PM. 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.
Information on inmate telephone service and access is located at Offender Phone Services.
A kiosk is available in the front entry building of the institution from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., 7 days a week. Approved visitors may deposit funds into an offender trust account or PIN Debit phone account using the kiosks.

Many institutions participate in fostering and training abandoned dogs for adoption.
In 2000, former First Lady Hope Taft approached the Director about establishing a reading room for the children who visited their incarcerated parent at the Pickaway Correctional Institution. This idea spread across the state, and now the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction maintains children’s reading rooms in each prison.
The reading rooms encourage family literacy by providing a pleasant and comfortable setting for both child and incarcerated parent. Each room is stocked with a wide variety of children’s books and has an inmate narrator who reads to the visiting children twice a day. The role of the inmate narrator is to read picture books to the children in much the same manner that children’s hour would be done at a public library.
A variety of arts and craft supplies for the children are also available in most of the rooms. Many of the supplies and books are donated by employees and service organizations.[Back to top]
