"I would tell young people getting in or wanting to get into the profession that, number one, law enforcement is a very noble profession," said Jones, who has worked law enforcement for nearly 29 years. "History has shown that there are ups and downs in law enforcement. We've seen it. Many of us have lived through those times and the last two, two and a half years have been no different. But it's about being a service-minded person. - Colonel Charles "Chuck" Jones
COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX) — In a letter sent to the Ohio State Highway Patrol Wednesday, the Ohio Department of Public Safety said the state will be offering recruitment and retention bonuses and some troopers will be getting pay raises.

DeWine has instructed the Department of Public Safety and Department of Administrative Services to enhance pay for certain categories of troopers and to offer the bonuses to new and existing employees, according to the letter.
​"There's a lot responsibility obviously that comes along with it and I understand that, but it's an opportunity that only 19 others before me have had the opportunity to do in the almost 89-year history of the Highway Patrol. It is definitely the highlight of my career and I'm looking forward to it."  - Colonel Chuck Jones, Ohio State Highway Patrol
