John Pomroy was hired as Executive Director in April after working for 5 months as Interim Executive Director. John is one of the founding members of the CAC and was its second Board President. John takes great pride in working to advocate for children and victims of crime, so this is a very good fit for him. He has served as an instructor at domestic violence and sexual assault agencies, and taught parenting through Pomona Unified School District Adult Education. He is a past member of the board of directors of Project SISTER Family Services(a sexual assault intervention agency).
John retired from the Pomona Police Department in December, 2013 after 25 years of service. Promoted to detective in 1993, John has been assigned to investigate a variety of cases, including; missing persons, hit and run traffic collisions, pawn shops, sexual assault, child abuse, domestic violence and gangs. For the last ten years, he was assigned to investigate financial crimes.
Before being a police officer, John worked at the Masonic Home for Children as a house parent. As a house parent, John lived and worked with about 50-60 kids. The kids and house parents became one big family. Several years ago, John started reconnecting with some of the kids and other house parents and attended many reunions with them. When John came back to the Masonic Home, he got the idea of moving the CAC to the Masonic Home campus. His dedication and hard work over the last two years was finally rewarded when the CAC moved to the Masonic Home campus in March, 2014.
John is married and has three children.
