Four new troopers are joining the Wapakoneta Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP).
The troopers are to take the places of other new troopers who joined the post late last year, as they have gotten assignments closer to their homes, Wapakoneta Post Commander Lt. Scott Carrico said.
The local post is expecting to gain a fifth new trooper from the next graduating class in April, to replace another trooper leaving in September. The four other troopers are scheduled to leave at the end of May.
