Sheriff Napoleon leads multi-agency effort in honoring former deputy killed on-duty in Dallas ambush.

A somber journey from Dallas to metro Detroit culminated in hundreds of law enforcement personnel paying tribute to a fellow officer gunned down while on duty July 7, 2016.  A funeral mass for Officer Michael Krol, a native of Redford and former Wayne County Sheriff's deputy, was held this morning at St. Robert Bellarmine Catholic Church.  Ofc. Krol pursued his dream of working with law enforcement to Texas after serving in the WC Jail divisions from November 2003 to August 2007.  

Sheriff Benny Napoleon and the WCSO served as the lead agency for conducting the procession and escort.  Activities involved coordinating with the Chiefs of Police for Dallas and Redford, as well as Ofc. Krol's family, the Harry J. Will Funeral Home (Redford), and Holy Sepulchre Cemetery (Southfield).  A command post was set up near the parking lot of St. Robert Bellarmine to monitor radio traffic and all mobile vehicles used in the funeral detail.
