Welcome to the Ohio State Highway Patrol Retirees' Association's website. It is designed to serve as a communications link by providing information and services to Association members, current Ohio State Highway Patrol employees, other law enforcement personnel and the public at large.
The "Public", or open access area of the site, includes information about the Association, History of the Patrol, links to other sites related to the Retirees' Association and Upcoming Social Activities.
The "Members Only" area of the website is accessible by Association members through the use of a password. This area includes information on the illness of members, the death of a member or immediate family, meeting notes and other important announcements.
We are proud of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, our Association, and retirees of the Patrol. We consider them to be the best group of people anywhere to associate with!

Shel Senek is working with OSP Historian, Barb Miller to enhance those items on display in Heritage Hall. We are asking Patrol Retirees to consider donating to the History Unit any artifacts that might be significant to the Patrol’s history, including print material, photographs or items used in the course of uniform and civilian duties (such as Radio Techs, Radio Dispatcher’s, DX’s, MVI Inspector’s or Load Limit Inspector’s) Many artifacts are already on display in Heritage Hall.
For example, Bill Fieger donated a complete scuba diving outfit. Until this donation,
we were missing that part of our Patrol history. We can check to determine if we have any duplicates already in storage of what you would like to donate.
We will respond to your email or phone call and let you know about your donation offer. Our overall goal is to have a complete history of the Patrol. Displays in Heritage Hall at the Academy will be changed from time to time to highlight significant events in Patrol history.
Congratulations to our OSHPRA Officers for 2015! Gil Jones, President, Lou Gliozzi, 1st Vice President, Pam Sullivan, 2nd Vice President, Kevin Titler, Secretary, Brian Landis, Treasurer and Butch Collins, Past President. Thank you for your service!
