Michigan State Police agency is seeking volunteers to assist with its “Angel” program, which allows an individual struggling with addiction to walk into any post and ask for assistance without fear of arrest or investigation.
Angel volunteers respond to assist MSP post personnel in locating the appropriate treatment option and with transporting the participant to a treatment center.
Volunteers are reimbursed for mileage and meal expenses, and after 20 hours of service, receive an hourly stipend.
Prospective participants will be trained by MSP personnel on the responsibilities and expectations of being an Angel. The Marshall Post will soon be conducting training for new volunteers.
More information is available by calling 269-558-0500, or visiting the website: michigan.gov/AngelProgram.
