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!

​Patrolman Sharp earned his commission on November 4, 1955, as a member of the 44th Academy Class. He was the first African-American Cadet to complete the entire 13-week training period and was the only minority member out of 700 employees in 1955. The Ohio State Patrol welcomes the opportunity to celebrate his legacy, which laid the groundwork for future generations. 
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 2019 from President Bob Booker and Treasurer Brenda Collins.  The Association sponsors a number of events, (including the Retiree's Cookout and the Cleveland Police Museum's Vintage Car Program) 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! 
What a great time, celebrating the 90th birthday of retired ET3 Curt Kordel with his many friends and family!  Birthday cards can still be sent to Curt at the addess listed below.  Happy Birthday Curt and thank you for your many years of dedicated service to the Citizens of Ohio.
