State Troopers of Ohio conducted their annual board meeting prior to the Sunbird Reunion this past Saturday, August 20th.  As provided by Director Tom Rice, who addressed the Sunbird audience, the Patrol has fallen below 1,400 uniform troopers due to the ongoing increase in retirements and resignations, a net loss of 200 troopers over the past two years.  We continue to work with our friends in the General Assembly to improve the pay and benefits for all of our active employees, in addition to finding a sustainable, dedicated funding source for the Patrol.  HELP US HELP THE PATROL.  Link to our STO page and become an STO Patron.
