Ohio State Highway Patrol Auxiliary - Ohio State Highway Patrol-Auxiliary Volunteer Dec 31, 2024



The Ohio State Highway Patrol Auxiliary is an all-volunteer force which provides assistance to troopers in the course of their duties. Among the duties of an Auxiliary officer are crash scene and traffic stop assistance, traffic control, disaster relief, and special detail support. The OSHP Auxiliary was formed in 1942 when many commissioned troopers began entering the armed forces during World War II. At that time, membership was limited to members of the American Legion which was largely made up of war veteran.


After the war, the Auxiliary was a critical component of Ohio’s Civil Defense Plan, with officers assigned to vital crossroads to assist with evacuation and convoy movement. Today, Auxiliary members contribute thousands of hours each year in an assortment of functions, including assisting Troopers during their patrols, working at the Ohio State Fair, working at Ohio State University football games, and supporting other details as needed. Each Auxiliary is based out of a local Highway Patrol Post and is required to log a minimum of 120 hours per year to remain active. Membership is no longer limited to American Legionaires.
