Berrien Springs-Oronoko Township Police Chief Milt Agay is hanging up his badge. The now-embattled chief has submitted retirement papers to the Michigan Municipal Employees Retirement System with an effective date of August 6. Agay has been on voluntary paid leave from the police department since February, and his retirement will take effect when his accrued sick and vacation time runs out. He and his department have been under investigation since the same time by Oronoko Township, and officials are still waiting for a report that had been due in March from an outside consultant. Just what that probe is looking into has not been publicly disclosed. Agay has been the chief in Berrien Springs-Oronoko Township since 2007 and has been with the department for 14 years. He has been an officer in Berrien County for 32 years and played a key role in developing the plan to consolidate the city of St. Joseph's police and fire units into a Department of Public Safety.
