The Ohio State Highway Patrol has developed Community Shield a training program designed specifically for the general public to help us Contribute to a Safer Ohio. Similar in concept to the successful Truck Shield program, Community Shield provides interested members of the general public with specific training on how to identify possible criminal behavior on Ohio’s roadways, and tools for contacting the Patrol at #677 in order to help us deploy Troopers and resources to the problem area.
Community Shield training, which will be delivered by Patrol officers in a one-hour training block during scheduled presentations, consists of instruction in impaired driver detection, criminal patrol, homeland security and human trafficking. This training is geared towards community members to assist local law enforcement and troopers while they are on the road as extra sets of eyes and ears.
Community members interested in receiving this training should contact their local Patrol Post.
