|Affiliates|| James Carter (Partner)|
|Portrayed by||Elizabeth Peña|
Tania Johnson is the L.A.P.D.'s bomb squad expert and sometimes partner to Carter. She doesn't like that Carter prefers to work alone, as he's the only cop in the department without a partner. It was secretly hinted that she had romantic feelings for Carter as he teases her about it several times in the film. She could be seen later in the film trying to practice how to disable a bomb in a training room. During the climax she help defuses the C4 vest that Soo-Yung was strapped to which saved her and she gives the vest to Lee ordering him to get rid of the vest as the remote could still set it off.
- It is unknown why Johnson didn't appear in the sequels.
