9/11 First Responder, Key Terror Task Force Investigator Dies

A 25 year veteran of the NYPD, assigned to the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) for 16 years, died suddenly earlier this week.

Robert Losada, 59, of Staten Island was a highly decorated Detective Sergeant when he retired from the NYPD in 2009. He continued his service with the JTTF as a criminal investigator with the U.S. Attorney’s office in Brooklyn.

“Bobby faithfully served the people of New York City,” said U.S Attorney Robert Capers, “keeping the country safe from real terror threats.”

Losada was a 9/11 first responder and investigated the terror plot to blow up the gas lines at Kennedy Airport and a plot to bomb a shopping mall.

“Bobby was well known throughout the FBI’s New York office and was a highly respected member of our JTTF,” said Assistant FBI Director William Sweeney.  “He was instrumental in ensuring integration between the FBI and the NYPD.”

Losada’s funeral and burial was Thursday on Staten Island.  He is survived by his wife, Daria, and their five children.
