KENSINGTON - The Ohio State Highway Patrol opened a Carroll County sub-post in the Ohio Department of Transportation office at 258 Kensington Road on Friday to better serve the motorists and residents in the area.
Patrol services for Carroll County are provided by the New Philadelphia post in Tuscarawas County. Troopers working in Carroll County will use the sub-post to meet with the public to complete crash reports, enter case investigations into the computer system and process evidence, with minimal additional costs.
"A sub-post in Carroll County will allow the New Philadelphia post to provide a more consistent level of service to the residents of Carroll County," Lt. Mark Glennon, New Philadelphia post commander, said in a press release. "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."
In January 2012, a plan was outlined to reorganize the patrol's structure. As part of the reorganization, plans are to establish sub-posts in the 31 resident counties that do not have stand-alone posts. Area motorists and residents in need of patrol services should contact the New Philadelphia Patrol Post at (330) 339-1103
