Highest-ranking cop on admin leave, GPD mum

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The highest-ranking police officer on the force has been placed on administrative leave.  KUAM News has confirmed that Colonel Joaquin Reyes was placed on leave for 20 days.  Police Chief Paul Suba would not comment on the matter, referring us to the Guam Police Department's legal counsel, Jim Mitchell, who likewise wouldn't comment, saying it's "a personnel matter".

Officials would not confirm that the reason for Reyes being placed on administrative leave was because he had made some derogatory statements about Suba during a meeting last week with high-ranking officers.  Reyes declined to comment about the meeting, statements he made about the chief or reacting to being placed on leave, only saying the department needs to heal.
