This website is dedicated to all Troopers and non-sworn employees, both past and present, whose hard work, dedication, loyalty and integrity have made the Ohio State Highway Patrol one of the most professional and well respected law enforcement agencies in the Country.  Troopers who have dedicated their lives to the Patrol and put them on the line every day to serve and protect the citizens of our great State deserve our support. 

It represents those who are proud to be a Trooper, proud of the Flying Wheel and proud to wear the black and gray.  It represents Troopers who serve their communities with respect, honesty and integrity.  It represents Troopers who respect the Highway Patrol and all it stands for.  It represents Troopers who love the Patrol and care about its future!
