PAW PAW, Mich. — Michigan State Police is seeking volunteers for the Angel Program at its Paw Paw post, MSP tells us.

The Angel Program helps those who struggle with addiction by allowing them to request assistance at any MSP post without fear of being arrested, according to state troopers.

We’re told volunteers are tasked with assisting police in determining the right treatment options and bringing participants to treatment centers.

MSP says volunteers are compensated for food and mileage expenses, adding they will receive an hourly stipend after 20 hours of service.

New volunteers will be trained in September, state troopers say.

Those interested in becoming an “Angel” may call the Paw Paw post at 269-657-5551 or visit this link.
