Master Trooper Tom Genco is from New York, but moved to Florida as a teenager. He accepted Christ as his savior at 15 and went on to major in pastoral studies in college. During that time, Tom met his wife, Tammie. Together they have one son.  In 2006, the Lord led Master Trooper Genco to pursue a career in law enforcement. One year later, he joined the South Carolina Highway Patrol. He began as a road trooper, and then after 12 and a half years, he transferred to a specialized unit, to help reduce the speed and promote the safety in construction zones.
