COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Gov. Mike DeWine announced a new program Wednesday to recruit law enforcement officers in Ohio.

A pilot program will involve Cedarville University and Central State University. Eleven law enforcement agencies have expressed interest, including the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, the Franklin County Sheriff’s office, and police departments in Dublin and Lancaster.
