MSP Recruiting Volunteers for Its Angel Program
The Michigan State Police are recruiting volunteers for the Angel Program.
This program allows someone with a drug addiction to walk into a state police post and seek help for their addiction.
According to MSP trooper David Prichard, people seeking help will do so without the fear of arrest or investigation.
The volunteers are responsible for walking the addict through the intake process — that includes helping fill out forms, and transporting the addict to the treatment facility.
The only requirement is that you must be 21 years or older, have your own vehicle and have a valid license.
Prichard also says its important for the volunteers to be compassionate, understanding and have a caretaker mentality.
If you or someone you know is interested in becoming an angel volunteer, you can contact trooper David Prichard at 231-779-6040.
