The event created a positive atmosphere for personnel, including troopers, dispatchers and professional staff, to interact with the public and the public was also able to tour the facility and ask questions, explained Sergeant Tyler Ross.

Lt. Bryan Mangin, who is with OSHP's Special Response Team, was on hand to explain what the special team does for the State of Ohio and its citizens.

As part of the Patrol’s 90th anniversary activities, the Patrol has partnered with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library of Ohio to help educate families about the free book program for Ohio’s littlest learners. Families with kids under the age of five were able to enroll their children into the program during the open house. 

After enrollment, the Imagination Library mails children one book each month until their fifth birthday at no cost to families. All Ohio children are eligible for this program. To learn more, visit https://ohioimaginationlibrary.org/

Little History on The OSHP...

The Ohio State Highway Patrol began on November 15, 1933, when the first 60 patrolmen earned their commissions following training at Camp Perry and began patrolling Ohio’s roads. Throughout the Patrol’s nine decades, the mission has always been the same – to save lives. 

Sergeant Tyler Ross points out what an old finger print kit looked like.

Founders envisioned an agency that showed compassion and sincerity, and promoted the safety and welfare for all Ohioans. Over the past 90 years, sworn officers and professional staff have provided service with a purpose for the citizens of Ohio.
