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!

Bean Day Changes!  In an attempt to improve attendance at our monthly bean day lunches, the Academy will now be hosting Bean Day on the 2nd Wednesday of the month.  In order for the Academy staff to plan appropriately, it is necessary for those attending to RSVP, on the Monday prior to each luncheon date, with Lori Pallante via email at lapallante@dps.ohio.gov or by phone at 614.387.6081.

Colonel Pride regrets to announce the off-duty death of Trooper Alison R. Holmgren, Unit 1926 of the Ashtabula Post. Trooper Holmgren passed away unexpectedly on February 19, 2019. Trooper Holmgren was a graduate of the 155th Academy Class. Funeral Arrangements are pending and the family is asking for privacy during this difficult time.

With our condolences, we report the passing of Marilyn E. Hemker, age 79, spouse of retired Trooper Richard A. Hemker, on Wednesday, February 13, 2019. Richard graduated from the 52nd Academy class and retired on March 29, 1989. Services have been conducted.  Condolence information can be found on the Member's page.
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 2018 from President Bob Booker and Treasurer Brenda Collins.  The Association sponsors a number of events, 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!
