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!

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! 
It's a Surprise Birthday Celebration!  Retired RT3 Curt Kordel will be celebrating his 90th Birthday on February 8th.  Curt's daughter, Susan McClure, would like his OSP friends to join in the surprise celebration.  A Birthday Party Open House will be at Curt's retirement home residence on Saturday, February 8th at the Claremont Retirement Village, 7041 Bent Tree Blvd in the Rose Room from 1 to 4 PM.  If you can't make the party, cards can be sent to Curt at
