43 new troopers set to graduate for Ohio patrol

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Dozens of new Ohio troopers are joining the ranks of the State Highway Patrol.

The agency says the 155th academy class graduating Friday includes 43 cadets. Former patrol superintendent and current Department of Public Safety Director John Born was scheduled to give the commencement address.

This group is smaller than each of the two classes that the patrol graduated early last year. Those classes added about 140 troopers, giving the patrol about 1,600 sworn officers in the state, a level it hadn't seen in years.

The organization had been seeking to increase its number of sworn officers after losing people through attrition and not graduating cadets in 2008 and 2010.
