After coming under heavy fire — including a class-action lawsuit — for how its police department handles the homeless, Pomona announced a $4 million initiative to help its unsheltered residents.

On Wednesday, Rodriguez announced the initiative that will help Pomona and its police department hire new officers and mental health counselors to work with the homeless population.

Under the Pomona Officers Assisting the Homeless initiative, or Pomona OATH, officers will receive additional training, Rodriguez.

“I am proud to join my Assembly Democratic colleagues in sending Governor Brown a responsible budget that reflects California’s values. This budget expands the Rainy Day Fund to the largest in history, as promised. We are reinvesting in our CSU and UC students, and bringing millions in funds to assist cities in dealing with the homelessness crisis. While California is growing and leading the way, we are also saving for our future.”
