58 Sworn Officers received the Ace or Criminal Patrol Awards

COLUMBUS – The Ohio State Highway Patrol announced the recipients of their 2014 4th Quarter Ace and Criminal Patrol Awards today. The recipients were honored with the Ace Award or Criminal Patrol Award at a ceremony held at the Patrol’s Training Academy today by Colonel Paul A. Pride, Patrol superintendent. Troopers are continually looking “beyond the plate” in order to remove drugs from Ohio communities and return stolen vehicles to their rightful owners.

The Ace Award is for excellence in auto larceny enforcement. Each winner will receive a certificate, uniform ribbon, and an Ace license plate for display on his or her cruiser. The Criminal Patrol Award is for excellence in felony enforcement and is given yearly to those who open at least 12 felony cases. Each winner will receive a certificate and uniform ribbon presented to him or her.
