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!

From our friends at the State Highway Patrol Federal Credit Union

Trooper Kyle Baxter, Unit 0727 – Crash Reconstruction Findlay District, was diagnosed with a mass in his brain in early February. Kyle had surgery on February 26th to remove the mass. Due to some complications, doctors were unable to remove the entire mass. Kyle has been making great progress but still has a long road to recovery. He was released to come home on March 3 and will continue to recover at home. The family will have a lot of unexpected expenses due to this procedure and the ongoing care. The family has a bank account at the Ohio State Highway Patrol Federal Credit Union. If you wish to help out, you can make a donation by contacting the credit union and let them know you want to make a donation in Tiffani Baxter’s name. Please continue to keep the Baxter family in your thoughts and prayers. Ohio State Highway Patrol Federal Credit Union 1900 Polaris Pkwy # 400, Columbus, Ohio 43240 (614) 431-0784 or (800) 282-3006.
