Just found them by googling for `Ohio police scanner' and `Ohio state patrol scanner', and there's more pages to look at too if those aren't right.
I don't live in Ohio, but here in Austin, Texas the police have moved to a digital trunking system that requires special scanners to pick up -- and they cost $400 and up. (Suitable models include the Radio Shack PRO-96 and PRO-2096.) On the bright side, most of their transmissions aren't encrypted, so with the right gear, you can listen to them. On the down side, they use computers for a lot of things now, and those communications ARE encrypted, so you won't be able to hear people's rap sheets and such over the scanner, as that's usually done over the computer now.)
Looking at the first link I gave, it looks like they currently use a standard FM system that you can listen to with almost any scanner, but they, like most other places, either have moved (sometimes these sites are out of date) or will move to a digital system.
The first link gives these frequencies --

OSP uses the MARCS, 800 MHz Trunked Digital scanner.
You will need any of the following:
BC996, 396, PSR500, PSR600, Pro2096, Pro96 to monitor.
Expect to pay ~ $400-500 depending on sales.
