Everyday Los Angeles Police Officers respond to approximately 5,000 calls for service, which means continuous interactions with the public. Officers see many situations, where good hard working families and Victim needing assistance. Many working parents and families working several jobs to make ends meet. So often, it's not enough.


Badge of Heart desires to connect Officers with the proper aid to help them sponsor families with financial burdens or a Victim of a Crime.

We strive not only to give relief, but to show compassion to the deserving people of our community.

​The Organization was inspired and founded in 2014 by a current Los Angeles Police Officer Ken Lew. In 27 years of service working in

Newton Street, 77th Division, South Bureau CRASH, Central Division & now Pacific Division, he witnessed and helped many deserving families change their lives.


Officer Ken Lew was born in Los Angeles and raised in Inglewood, South LA & Westchester. He wanted to continue and help make a difference in the community he once lived and now serves.
