Collin Rose - Fallen Hero

Collin Rose Memorial CardThe Wayne State University Police Department would like to thank you for reaching out to us in our time of sorrow. The Detroit Police Department Tactical Operations Unit is handling the planning of the funeral services for Officer Collin Rose. Please contact them at 313-237-2828. 


A funeral for Officer Rose will be held on Thursday, Dec. 1 at 10 a.m. at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church, 22412 Overlake Street, St. Clair Shores, MI 48080. Since we anticipate the church will be extremely crowded, we are hoping to simulcast the funeral with the permission of the family. We will share information as it becomes available. For more information regarding the funeral, visit the obituary for Collin James Rose.
