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!

Update 3292015 - Along with retired Colonel Tom Rice, Brenda and I enjoyed a visit with the "Rev" and Linda Ellsworth yesterday as Linda convalesces in Granville. They are both doing well and expressed their appreciation for the many cards and other well wishes that they have received over the past few weeks. Please continue to keep them in your prayers.

Update 3292015 - Along with retired Colonel Tom Rice, Brenda and I enjoyed a visit with Dave and Elaine Sturtz at their home yesterday. Major Dave expressed his appreciation for the many cards, telephone calls, and other well wishes that he has received over the past few weeks. 

A highlight of our visit was an extended discussion about the Captain Dave Sturtz obstacle course that he created along the Blanchard River while serving as the Commander of the Findlay District. Captain Sturtz created the obstacle course to build morale among the troops. When a Toledo Blade reported asked to do a story about the obstacle course, Captain Sturtz insisted that the reporter try the course himself or he wouldn't agree to do the story. While climbing one of the barriers the reporter broke his ankle. The story was very positive! 

Please continue to keep Dave and Elaine in your prayers!
