Ohio Highway Patrol To Grow Force By 17%

May 31, 2012  | 

The Ohio State Highway Patrol is hoping to find 180 qualified cadets to fill two upcoming training academy classes, a significant recruiting surge that signals new stability for the patrol’s once-fluctuating budget, reports the Dayton Daily News.

The academy, dormant for 18 months without funding, graduated a class in February. It is training a class on its Columbus campus and hopes to fill two more in the near future.

The 180 cadets would represent 17.2 percent of the 2011 trooper level of 1,043, according to highway patrol data. The patrol is losing an average of 4.8 troopers per month to attrition, said spokeswoman Lt. Anne Ralston.
