After patrolling the streets of Los Angeles for more than two decades, Officer Ken Lew saw a lot of families and crime victims in need. In 2014 he decided to start a nonprofit organization to help out those families.
Badge of Heart has provided food, clothing, housing assistance and baby essentials to families.
The organization is also hosting its first BBQ event Sunday to raise funds for the family of CHP Sgt. Steve Licon, who was killed in the line of duty in Riverside County last week.
For more information about Lew's organization and details on how to donate to the cause, visit badgeofheart.org.
Officer Lew visited the KTLA News set with anchors Lu Parker and Glen Walker on April 10, 2019.
