Sad But Nice...Dozens Of Police Dogs Support Fallen Police Officer
From the Detroit Free Press: Yips and yowls echoed down an otherwise silent Adams Street in downtown Detroit on Wednesday as hundreds of police officers — many with their police dogs — stood in line for the viewing of a Wayne State University officer killed on duty.
Officer Collin Rose, 29, was fatally shot Nov. 22 while working in a neighborhood west of the university's Midtown campus. The viewing at Ford Field drew officers and police dogs from across the state and beyond....
Rose, who had two police dogs — Clyde and Wolverine — worked as part of Ford Field's security team on Detroit Lions game days. The visitation was a first for the stadium, according to a Ford Field spokesperson.....
George Mason University Master Police Officer Travis Willis traveled from Virginia with fellow Officer Ryan Crice to attend the viewing. Willis said his department felt it would be good, as another university, to show support. He's 29, the same age Rose was.
If you view the video in the story, you will see the dozens of K-9 handlers and their dogs honor Officer Rose.
RIP to Officer Rose and prayers to his family, friends and fellow police officers.
