The Toledo Correctional Institution maintains video visiting kiosks in every general population housing unit. The hours of availability for video visits are as follows:
All visits are 30 minutes in duration and must be from an
approved visitor. An approved visitor is someone who
has submitted an application for visitation and that
application has been approved by institutional staff.
Approved visitors must create an account and register with
JPay. When approved visitors register for a video
visit, they will be prompted by JPay through a series of
steps to schedule and confirm their visit. Video
visits must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance of the
time they are requesting.
A kiosk is available in the front entry
building of the institution from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., 7 days a
week. Approved visitors may deposit funds into an
offender trust account or PIN Debit phone account using the
kiosks. For additional information on inmate funds or
other deposit options please visit

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]
