Flint Post seeking Angel volunteers

FLINT — The Michigan State Police Flint Post is seeking volunteers to assist with the 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 once eligible (after 20 hours of service), receive an hourly stipend. Angels will be trained by MSP personnel on the responsibilities and expectations of being an Angel.

The Flint Post will be conducting training for new volunteers on Sept. 16 from 1-3 p.m. at the Michigan State Police Tri-City Post, 2402 W. Salzburg Rd., Freeland, MI 48623.

If you are interested in learning more about the MSP Angel program or becoming an “Angel” volunteer, please contact the Flint Post at 810-732-1111 or visit www.michigan.gov/AngelProgram.
