I am a civilian, who just bought a C.O.P.S coffee mug set from Beall's Bay, LLC from Amazon. I got this to bring to Barnstable Police Department, Cape Cod, MA. during National Police Week.

Inside the box was an acknowledgement of Patrol Officer Anthony E. Lossiah.
I just wanted to express my sorrorow and condolences to the family of PO Lossiah.

I worked on the Zuni Reservation, Zuni, NM for four years and was in awe of the dedication and courage of the Zuni Police Department.
