Milt wants to express his sincere thanks to the citizens and business owners of Oronoko Township and the Village of Berrien Springs for the honor of serving them these past fourteen years.
“It was my pleasure and privilege to have worked for these fine folks these past years. And, I was honored to work with all of the officers in the Police Department, a team of good people and fine police officers, all of whose professionalism and skills made being Chief that much easier. I have nothing but high praise for each and every one of them.”
Chief Agay has served as an officer in two Berrien County police agencies for nearly 32 years; the last14 years in Oronoko Township. He spent his entire police career in the area in which he grew up, as did his father and grandfather (also police officers), desiring to serve and give back to the public in order to help make his community a safer place for all people to enjoy a peaceful quality of life.
Milt would also like to acknowledge the support and friendship he has received over the years from others in the law enforcement community,as well as the support from those serving in state
