Rose is the third officer in Detroit to die in the last 45 days. This week, he was posthumously promoted to sergeant and was also awarded a citation for valor, the highest honor awarded by the Wayne State University Police Department.

A funeral will be held for Rose Thursday in St. Clair Shores. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with funeral expenses.
