DETROIT (AP) — 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.
