The Patrol’s Retiree Cookout, scheduled for June 12, and the Sunbird Reunion, scheduled for August 8th, have both been canceled in response to recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for controlling the spread of the coronavirus.  

The Retiree Cookout, co-hosted by Ohio State Highway Patrol Retirees’ Association, the Patrol Federal Credit Union, the Ohio Troopers Coalition, and the Ohio State Highway Patrol Auxiliary has given the Patrol the opportunity to celebrate the many contributions our retirees have made to the Division.  

The Patrol looks forward to continuing our partnership with our co-hosts as we plan for the 2021 Retiree Cookout.

Other cancellations and closures can be found on the Coming Events Page.
