Graduating cadets to boost roster of OSHP troopers



Published: Fri, February 8, 2013 @ 1:24 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — The Ohio State Highway Patrol has graduated the first of two overlapping classes of cadets in a move expected to beef up a personnel roster that dwindled in recent years as the agency’s cadet classes didn’t keep pace with its attrition rate.

Eighty-one cadets graduated from the patrol’s 153rd class today after 20 weeks of training. More new troopers graduate with the 154th class April 5.

A spokeswoman says their addition is expected to bump up staffing to around 1,600 sworn officers in the state, a level the patrol hasn’t seen since 2006.

Lt. Anne Ralston says the patrol ended up short-staffed in recent years because it didn’t graduate cadets in 2008 or 2010 and was losing about 60 people annually, mostly through attrition.
