Palacios probes GPD's CAPE program

Posted: Updated:

by Nick Delgado

After receiving numerous complaints about harassment, Senator Adolpho Palacios wants answers from the Guam Police Department.  The lawmaker says he's received complaints that Community-Assisted Policing Effort (CAPE) volunteers, in civilian attire, are abusing their authority - hiding between vehicles at different establishments, and then handing out citations.

Palacios reminded the department, in a letter, that CAPE volunteers are required to be in an official uniform when giving out citations.  "The problem here is I wonder whether the enforcement at that point is a valid enforcement or not if they're not in compliance with the dress code that they're required to do under the program of the Guam Police Department the so-called CAPE program."
