Guam - Chief Marshal for the Judiciary of Guam Frank Leon Guerrero has been nominated by President Barack Obama to be the U.S. Marshal for Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands.  Leon Guerrero has an extensive background in law enforcement, having retired as a police major from the Guam Police Department after dedicating 25 years of his life as a police officer. 

Leon Guerrero also spent some time as Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo's constituent services director. He then took on his current role as the top brass at the Judiciary.

The son of Guam says he is humbled by the nomination and received official word this morning from the congresswoman, saying, "It's been an exciting day; I look forward to it...I love my career and I keep working with it and I tried retirement, but no, there's still a lot of things that I can do and serve my community, [and] serve my island."

Leon Guerrero, who attended the University of Guam, was nominated to the position along with two others today.  An extensive background investigation is now being conducted before his nomination goes up for Senate approval.
