One of the officers who was killed in the Dallas shootings will be laid to rest in metro Detroit on Tuesday.

Visitation began Monday for Officer Michael Krol.

Krol was an officer with the Dallas Police Department for 9 years, according to his mom, after leaving Michigan.

The Wayne County Sheriff's Office says Krol worked in the Wayne County jails from 2003 to 2007.

The visitation for Krol will be held on Monday, July 18 from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Harry J. Will Funeral Home in Redford Township. The funeral mass is set for 11 a.m. on Tuesday, July 19 at the St. Robert Bellarmine Catholic Church in Redford Township. 

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Assist the Officer or the National Association of Police/Activities League.
