Video Visitation

At Madison Correctional Institution, video visitation is available seven (7) days weekly, from 7:30-10:30 AM, 12:30-3:30 PM, and 5:30-8:30 PM.  Visits are thirty (30) minutes in duration, but an additional thirty minutes can be scheduled if the kiosk is not scheduled immediately after your scheduled video visit.  Video visitation reservations must be made twenty-four (24) hours in advance and are subject to first-come, first-serve availability.

An approved visitor is defined as: a visitor that submitted an application for visitation, processing has been completed, and approval by institutional staff has taken place.  Any approved visitor 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.

Video visitation kiosks are available to all general population inmates in their housing units.   Inmates in restrictive housing (segregation) are not permitted video visits.   All visitation rules and regulations for video visitation are the same as institutional visits.  Violation of visiting rules during video visitation might result in a loss of visiting privileges.    All video visits are monitored, recorded, and/or reviewed after the video visit session.  Video visitation is limited to only approved and tentatively approved visitors.  Video visits might be stopped if a violation of visiting rules is observed.

MaCI visiting hours are 12:00 pm-8:00 pm M-F and 8:00 am-4:00 pm S-S.​

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.

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 with the following information:

·         Date & session of visit

·         Inmate last name and inmate number

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.

§  Example:

·         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.
