Officers shut down 11 homeless encampments in Pomona and arrested 17 people, police said Friday.

The Pomona Department did not say what time officers began the arrests on Thursday but reported that they had dismantled 11 encampments and issued two citations, said Pomona police Cpl. Kristian Gutierrez without stating what transgressions are suspected. The operation was carried out by the department’s Homeless Encampment Action Response team, which is known as the HEART detail.

Additionally, six city parks were checked for possible homeless encampments, Gutierrez said.

Pomona police asked anyone with any information regarding homeless encampment issues to call (909) 620-2085.
