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!

Kenton Anderson, husband of AP1 Kay Anderson, Piqua Post, was involved in a farming accident. While operating a combine, the combine caught fire and he received severe burns. He was flown to Miami Valley Hospital and has underwent several surgeries. He is currently heavily sedated and healing in the burn unit. He is expected to be in the hospital for several more weeks. While visitation is limited due to risk of infection, prayers and cards would be appreciated. Kay is in good spirits and has a good support network of family and friends.  Information to send cards of encouragement can be found on the Member's page.
