COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio State Highway Patrol is hoping to find 180 qualified cadets to fill two upcoming training academy classes, a significant recruiting surge that signals new stability for the patrol's once-fluctuating budget, officials said.
The academy, dormant for 18 months without funding, graduated a class in February. It is training a class on its Columbus campus and hopes to fill two more in the near future.
