In 2007 the Ohio State Patrol began a test of a new Heads-Up-Display (HUD). This allowed troopers to manage the various functions within the cruiser via voice activation or touch screen. One test cruiser was assigned to Springfield's Post 12. The test period ended with the OSP deciding not to add the HUD to their cruisers. They were very gracious to bring the cruiser to our meeting location for a closer view.
