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.
Visitation periods are “split sessions” with each session counted as a single visit for the month. For example:
· 1st visitation session – 8a.m. to 11:15 am = 1 visit
· 2nd visitation session – 11:45 am to 3 pm = 1 visit
Visitor’s must arrive before 10 a.m. for the 1st visitation session and 1 p.m. for the 2nd visitation session.
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.
MaCI will only accept visitors who have a reservation. You will be given a confirmation number once your reservation has been approved. You must have this number the day you arrive to visit for verification purposes.
Our recommended method of making a reservation is by utilizing our online reservation option. This option is available 24/7; however please allow 72 hours for a response from the visiting department. Submit an email to DRC.VisitationMaCI@odrc.state.oh.us with the following information:
· Date & session of visit
· Inmate last name and inmate number
· Complete name of each visitor coming to visit
o Adult visitor(s) full first and last names as it appears on their visit application / State I.D.
o Minors (under the age of 18); full name and relationship (if any) to the inmate.
· Jane Doe + 2 minors (Tom Doe- son and Sue Doe – daughter) to see inmate Doe #A123-456 on 11/15/16 at 12:15 pm.
We hope this process will simplify the visit reservation process for all involved.
