Lima Patrol Post open house for 90th Anniversary

In celebration of the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s 90th anniversary, the Lima Post is  hosting an open house for members of the community. The open house allows our Patrol personnel, including troopers, and professional staff, to interact with the public we serve. 

September 28, 1:00-5:00 p.m.
Lima Patrol Post, 2005 E. Fourth Street, Lima

Members of the community can tour the facility, ask questions and learn about  employment opportunities with the Patrol. A recruiter will be on-site to assist with any  recruitment questions and help with the application process. 

As part of the Patrol’s 90th anniversary activities, the Patrol is partnering with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library of Ohio to help educate families about this free book program for Ohio’s littlest learners. Families with kids under the age of five can 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.

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. 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.
