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!

Retired S/Lieutenant Doug Wells is in treatment for congestive heart failure and other serious medical issues at his home.

Retired Captain A. L. Whitehead, 50th Academy Class, (pictured left in car) is recovering from triple by-pass surgery at OSU Hospital.

Retired Captain Don Slemmer (lower left with his family at the Snowbird Reunion) continues his recovery after suffering a serious fall and fracturing his pelvis in four places.

Patrol Chaplin, Rev. Dick Ellsworth, 95 years young,  (pictured left in rocker), has been home bound for several weeks, suffering from severe back pain. 

Retired Sergeant Arthur Williams was hospitalized for several days after a stroke.  He is recovering at home.

Attention Members - With the annual renewal of the contract with our messaging system "One Call Now", text messaging has been added to the voice and email option for contacting our membership. All current members will automatically have texting added to their contact options. If you would prefer not to be texted, simply opt out of this option, as some of our members have done with the voice contact service.  Have a question, contact us by clicking the box below.
Attention Members - The 2021 Florida Snowbird Reunion, sponsored by the Ohio State Highway Patrol Retirees Association, has been cancelled. This decision, by the Executive Board, is due to COVID-19 social distancing concerns. The health and wellness of our retirees remains our paramount concern. This event, as well as other reunions, will be re-scheduled next year.
