Wayne State University honors officer killed in line of duty

Posted November 30

— A police officer who was killed in the line of duty in Detroit has been awarded a citation for valor and posthumously promoted to sergeant.

Wayne State University police Chief Anthony Holt issued the honors for canine officer Collin Rose during a vigil Tuesday night at the Detroit school.

University President M. Roy Wilson says a $25,000 endowed scholarship is being created in Rose's name.

A visitation for Rose is being held Wednesday at Ford Field, home of the Detroit Lions. It has drawn officers and police dogs from across and beyond Michigan.

Visitation and a funeral Mass are planned Thursday morning at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in St. Clair Shores.

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