“I really love having my son there,” she said. “It’s secured for free, okay? Free security and he never lets me forget. But you know, Tom is very busy and travels all the time. I travel all the time and my son is super busy.
“So it’s nice. We have a very big house, so it’s nice to have it there. ‘

It’s nice to hear him come home. It’s nice to hear him come from his shift and I see his car in the driveway or I hear him walking up the stairs. For me, I sleep a little better at night knowing I know where he is. “
Tommy graduated from the Los Angeles Police Academy in 2014 and was previously a former explorer with the Jersey City Police Activity League.
She told it Daily dish in 2018 that her boy was always destined to become a police officer.
“It is a dangerous profession. I knew my son would go to the police from the moment he could walk and talk, ”she said. “That’s all he ever wanted, and it’s kind of your role as a parent to honor who your kids really are.”
