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!

In the 40 plus years of our existence, the OSP Retiree's Association has charged $1 per month / $12 per year for membership.  How do we spend your dollar? The PDF below provides an overview of our expenses for 2019 from President Bob Booker and Treasurer Brenda Collins.  The Association sponsors a number of events, (including the Retiree's Cookout and the Cleveland Police Museum's Vintage Car Program) reducing the cost of these events for our members that wish to attend.  Also, Board members work for free, putting in many hours of volunteer time to reduce administrative cost.  Thanks to all who have served on the board over our long history!

The Patrol’s Memorial Ceremony, previously scheduled for May 8, has been canceled in response to recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for controlling the spread of the coronavirus.

Our Memorial Ceremony has been an annual event that honors Patrol personnel who placed service above self. Equally as important, it’s been our opportunity to pay special tribute to the surviving family members who have paid an enormous price.

Although we are unable to hold this event this year, we encourage you to keep these brave Ohio State Highway Patrol personnel in your prayers; it is our duty to ensure that these courageous men and women are never forgotten and remain always in our thoughts - Colonel Rick Fambro 
With our condolences we report the passing of Steve A. Foltz, 50, brother of retired Trooper James Foltz,  on March 30, 2020. Services will be private.  Information to send condolences can be found on the member's page.
