Kenton–The Ohio State Highway Patrol announced today that it will open a sub-post in Hardin County to better serve the motorists and residents in the area. The Findlay Post, which is located in Hancock County, but also provides services for Hardin County, will begin operating from an office located at the BKP Ambulance building at 439 South Main in Kenton.
Troopers working in Hardin County can use the sub-post to meet with the public in order to complete crash reports, enter case investigations into the computer system and process evidence with no additional costs.
“A sub-post in Hardin County will allow the Findlay Post to provide a more consistent level of service to the residents of Hardin County” said Lt. Matthew Meredith, Findlay Post Commander. “The establishment of this enhanced presence in the county is another way in which the Ohio State Highway Patrol is contributing to a safer Ohio”
BKP Board Member Beryl Rogers-Dudek said it is a perfect fit for both organizations, “We’re very excited to have them join us in the building, and we know it enables them to spend more time on the roadways, which benefits everyone.”
She also talked about how it came to be, “They approached us and said they would like to share office space with us, and the board decided that would be a great idea.”
