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!

The Ohio State Highway Patrol History Unit is missing the “1963 November - December Flying Wheel” issue. We do not know if this issue was published or not. If you have a 1963 Flying Wheel issued with a November or December month, may we have or borrow the publication. If donated, it will be archived with our other Flying Wheel publications. If loaned to us, we will copy the publication and return the original to you. If you have this issue then please contact Barb Miller at www.bamiller@dps.ohio.gov or Shel Senek at www.senek@dps.ohio.gov or call (614) 752-8234. Thanks in advance to our Retirees and Surviving Spouses for taking the time to research your Flying Wheels.
