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!

Don’t miss your chance to reserve a copy of Reverend Richard Ellsworth’s autobiography, Rev: Service Above Self. Written in conjunction with retired Captain Mike Crispen, Rev: Service Above Self explores Ellsworth’s amazing life from his service in World War 2 to his work as the Patrol’s chaplain. The book will be available for purchase in January 2019. Only a limited number of copies will be available, so to reserve your own copy go to https://my.cheddarup.com/c/rev. No advanced payment is required to make a reservation. Everyone who reserves a copy will be able to purchase the book two weeks before it is available for sale to the general public. A portion of the proceeds will be dedicated to supporting the Ohio State Highway Patrol Chaplaincy Program.
