On June 29th 2019 a post was created on Facebook regarding Pomona Police and contract negotiations. It was reported the Pomona Police Associations has been in negotiations since March of 2019 and has not been able to reach an agreement. As of Monday July 1, 2019 the Pomona Police Department will be in operation out of contract if no contract agreement is reached.

What does this mean for the future of the Pomona Police Department? In the 2018 elections Prop PG was passed to increase sales tax to support the Pomona PD, has there been a change where those tax dollars are being directed? Are we treading in murky waters?
