DETROIT - A branch of the Michigan State Police Angel Program has been established in Metro Detroit and volunteers are needed to help it in its efforts to get addicts off drugs.
The pre-arrest diversion program allows those with a drug addiction to go to a state police post for help without fear of arrest or investigation.
Program volunteers will provide support and transportation to participants. Volunteers will also assist post personnel in finding treatment for the participants.
Participants can not have active warrants, pending court action or be registered sex offenders, and they must arrive voluntarily for treatment.
Volunteers are being sought until Dec. 1. Training begins on Dec. 12-13.
To volunteer in Oakland or Macomb counties, contact 248-584-5740 or Kellarm@michigan.gov. To volunteer in Wayne County, contact 734-287-5000 or DeClercqA@michigan.gov.
