Safety Building Mural

December 22, 2014

Detective Terry Cousino put the final brushstroke, his signature, on the second floor mural in the Safety Building. The well thought out mural was six years in the making and a masterpiece of true talent and heart. Cousino tells the story of the department through painfully accurate renderings he painted in a purposeful sequence. When he had no “down time” to dedicate to the mural during his normal workday, he would come in during his off-night hours and work quietly by himself. Cousino has the heart of a policeman who desired to preserve the proud history of the department he serves, and the heart of a father who wanted to leave a legacy for his son, Ben, to look upon with pride.
