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!

Congratulations to Retired Sergeant John W. Maddox (pictured with President Gil Jones and wife, Reverend Margie Maddox) who was presented the Distinguished Retiree Award at the 2015 Leadership Awards Luncheon.

The Distinguished Retiree Award is presented annually to a retiree who personifies the core values of the Highway Patrol by providing service to the local community through outreach, volunteerism, and continued commitment to promoting the mission of the Ohio State Highway Patrol. The Award is presented at the Ohio State Highway Patrol's Leadership Award luncheon in February. This year the Distinguished Retiree Award was graciously sponsored by Mrs. Veronica Godlaski on behalf of her husband, Trooper James Gross who was killed in the line of duty January 19, 1996. Previously, the Ohio State Highway Patrol Retiree's Association sponsored the Award.

This Award was initiated by the Ohio State Highway Patrol in conjunction with the Highway Patrol Retiree's Association in 2014. Retired Lt. Colonel Bill Costas (Cleveland District) was the first recipient of the Award in 2014.
The 2016 listing of Executive Board Officers and District Representatives has been updated and available in the left column of the webpage.  An alternate representative for the Piqua District is still needed.  The first quarter business meeting notes (Snowbird Reunion) are now available.
