Truck Shield

The Ohio State Highway Patrol, in conjunction with the Ohio Trucking Association rolled out a progam dubbed Truck Shield in May 2012. This program is designed specifically for truck drivers and aims to train these drivers to assist law enforcement while they are on the road as extra sets of eyes and ears.

Truck Shield provides truck drivers 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 the Patrol to deploy troopers and resources to the problem area.

Truck Shield training is conducted by Patrol officers during scheduled safety meetings and consists of instruction in impaired driver detection, criminal patrol, homeland security and human trafficking.

Trucking companies interested in receiving this training should contact their local Patrol Post.
