BERRIEN SPRINGS — Berrien Springs-Oronoko Township police faced everything from floods to crime to routine calls in 2018, Police Chief Paul Toliver told Berrien Springs Village Council members Monday.

Toliver said the department’s goals remain the same: to provide professional law enforcement services to the village and township and to be transparent and fiscally accountable. The one thing that has changed is the status of officer Rick Smiedendorf, who now works half time for the department and half time for the schools.
