Collin Rose, 29 year old Wayne State University police officer and K9 Handler, was killed in the line of duty on November 23, 2016.

Rose loved and respected the people in his community and the law he swore to uphold. He was an active member of the National Association of Professional Canine Handlers and of the Metro-Detroit Shutzhund Club.

To honor Officer Rose, Metro-Detroit Shutzhund Club head trainer, John Bochenek, and Police K9 Handler/Master Trainer, Bob Loken, have offered their time, skills and energy to train two police K9s to perform both general Police K9 duties in the name of Officer Rose-- with one specifically in explosives and the other for narcotics.

We are asking for monetary donations to fund this project. Acquiring, maintaining, and training two Police K9s to perform Police K9 duties to keep our community safe and perform specific services comes with a variety of expenses.  In addition to the cost of training which takes between six to 12 months, these care-givers need our help to provide food, medical care, and necessary supplies associated with day-to-day care of the dogs.

The money raised in memory of Officer Rose will help with acquiring, supporting, and the day- to-day caring of these future K9s. Upon completion of their training, the dogs will be donated to worthy Police K9 Handlers, in the name and honor of Officer Collin Rose, a fallen brother, son, and friend.   

-In Honor of Badge #128.
