“This really started with me watching the news and then seeing what was happening out here in Houston,” Capt. Jonathan Tom explained. “We saw that poor sergeant who died in the line of duty,” referring to Houston PD’s Sgt. Steve Perez found drowned Aug. 29.

Tom is the commanding officer of LAPD’s south traffic division with 130 officers working under him.
