For many DTE Energy employees, the death of Wayne State University Sgt. Collin Rose was personal. The company’s security team works closely with the WSU Police Department on a number of initiatives, including supplying bait cars to help reduce auto thefts in Detroit.
“As a public servant dedicated to the safety of the public, Sgt. Rose represents the best of us,” said Michael Lynch, director and Chief Security Officer for DTE. “We grieve. Yet, for DTE Energy and its employees, grieving is not enough.”
That is why Lynch stood with WSU Police Department Chief Anthony Holt and Detroit Police Chief James Craig at a press event to announce that DTE is matching the existing reward for information that leads to the arrest of the suspect in Rose’s killing.
The reward, which now stands at $30,000, is evidence to Chief Holt of a strong public/private sector partnership. He calls it one of the reasons they have been successful in making sure WSU has a safe, secure campus.
“That’s one of the reasons I am confident that the person responsible for the death of our officer will be apprehended,” Holt said.
