Detroit police attend 44th annual interfaith Mass at St. Mary's church

Memorial car honoring fallen officers unveiled

DETROIT – Detroit police officers attended the 44th annual Interfaith Memorial Service and March Wednesday morning.

A memorial car with the names of fallen officers on it was unveiled before the Mass.

The 2013 Dodge Challenger came from a drug seizure, and all the graphics and lights on the car were donated, so it didn’t cost the department anything. Below is a video from the car unveiling.

Chief James Craig said he was touched by the memorial.

“This is not just about our Detroit police officers,” he said, “This is about American police officers that fight the good fight to keep our communities safe across this nation.”

Hundreds of officers marched through Greektown to the interfaith Mass. Officers said they are continuing to pray for a Detroit police officer who was shot Sunday night.

He remains in a medically induced coma and has swelling on his brain after he shot in the head.

Watch the unveiling of the memorial car below.
