Michigan State Police at the Paw Paw post are wishing a good retirement to their commander. The retirement of First Lieutenant Angel Ouwinga will officially start next Wednesday. Ouwinga has served with Michigan State Police for 26 years, having enlisted in September of 1994. She graduated as a member of the 110th Recruit School and was first assigned as a trooper at the now closed Coldwater post. She later served with the Fifth District fugitive team and surveillance team, the Sixth District fugitive team, the Rockford post, the Lakeview post, and the Wayland post. In her role as Paw Paw post commander, she’s been responsible for providing police leadership and services to both Kalamazoo and Van Buren counties.
