Slain Detroit police officer’s funeral set for Thursday


    Hundreds of police officers and their Police K-9s enter Ford Field in formation to pay their respects to fallen Wayne State University Police K-9 Officer Collin Rose.

DETROIT >> Law enforcement officers from across and beyond Michigan are set to pay their final respects to a Detroit police officer killed in the line of duty.

A funeral Mass was scheduled Thursday morning for Wayne State University police canine officer Collin Rose at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in suburban St. Clair Shores.

Visitation was held Wednesday at Ford Field, home of the Detroit Lions, drawing officers from across the state and elsewhere.

Rose was shot Nov. 22 as he tried to arrest DeAngelo Davis, who faces murder and gun charges.

Wayne State Police Chief Anthony Holt cited Rose for valor and posthumously promoted him to sergeant during a vigil Tuesday. University President M. Roy Wilson said a $25,000 endowed scholarship was being created in Rose’s name.
