Ordering Procedure

The Commemorative Badge is purchased at the employee’s own expense and may only be purchased from Cop/s Armament and Apparel which is a subsidiary of the Ohio Troopers Coalition. 


Orders can be placed by contacting Tara Bardelang at the Ohio Troopers Coalition office at 614-781-7686.  Payment can be made via cash, money order, over the phone using a debit/ credit card, or by mailing a check made payable to “Cop/s A & A” and sent to 190 W. Johnstown Rd., Gahanna, OH 43230.  Orders will not be submitted to Creative Casting until full payment has been received.



Distribution of Commemorative Badge

Once the order is received by Cop/s A & A, the employee will be notified that it’s eligible for pick up.  Shipping will not be permitted. The individual employee that is purchasing their Commemorative Badge must personally pick up the badge and sign for it (Photo ID will be required).  Badges are not permitted to be signed for by anyone other than the employee who purchased it.  Badges can be picked up at the Ohio Troopers Coalition office located at 190 W. Johnstown Rd. in Gahanna, Ohio. 


Creative Casting suggests a timeframe of 6-8 weeks to receive the finished product. 




The Commemorative Badge can be purchased at the employee’s own expense for $79.95 plus tax and must be paid in full prior to ordering. 


Purchases can be paid for by cash, money order, check or credit card (Visa, Master Card, American Express and Discover). 



OSHP Embossed Black Leather Badge Wallet can be purchased for $29.95 plus tax and must be paid in full prior to ordering.  


PLEASE NOTE:  The company we purchase these from classifies them as a “Badge Wallet” but in actuality it is a Badge Holder.  There is no extra pocket for your money, just a slide pocket with a clear plastic covering for your ID.   To see a picture of the Badge Wallet, click on the STORE tab above then click on the Badge icon within the list of products.  From there you can view the badge as well as the wallet.


Purchases can be paid for by cash, money order, check or credit card (Visa, Master Card, American Express and Discover). 




All badges from Creative Casting come with a lifetime guarantee.  Should you need to return a badge for any wear and tear or defects, please contact Tara at 614.781.7686.  Once your purchase has been confirmed with our records, we can return it to Creative Casting for repairs.  Repairs can take anywhere from 7-14 business days to complete. 



Questions about the Commemorative Badge ordering process can be directed to Tara Bardelang with the Ohio Troopers Coalition via email at tbardelang@ohiotroopers.org or by phone at 614-781-7686.

Troopers for a Safer Ohio


Troopers for a Safer Ohio (TSO), operating as a separate corporation from the Ohio Troopers Coalition, was formed for the purpose to endorse candidates that will support state trooper’s causes, work for safer driving conditions for Ohio’s citizens, and to work towards safer work conditions for Ohio’s Troopers.


As a separate corporation, it cannot be funded by union dues or by the Ohio Troopers Coalition. To raise funds to support its causes, TSO has contracted with a professional fundraiser, Telcom, to do phone solicitation. While Telcom does not call on behalf of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, its efforts are used to benefit the members of the Highway Patrol and Ohio’s drivers. The funds that are raised are currently used to financially support the following programs:


  1. Project Impact in Southeastern Ohio
  2. None Under 21 in Northeastern Ohio
  3. Juvenile Driving Programs in Central Ohio


Troopers for a Safer Ohio is also just beginning to develop an informational program on Ohio’s “Move Over” law in an attempt to help keep our Troopers safer.
