Guam - During his last State of the Judiciary Address as the chief justice of the Supreme Court of Guam, the Honorable Robert Torres talked about technology and making the court more accessible to everyone. Torres spoke about an array of programs and projects the Judicial Branch of the Government of Guam has planned for the island.

Titling his speech "The Role of the Judiciary in Building Up Guam, One Life At A Time," Torres anticipates the implementation of the Criminal Justice Information System.  "This system eliminates redundant data entry, saves personnel time, reduces errors, and helps law enforcement to more quickly get criminals off the street," he said.

Torres says as a result of the recently-completed Facilities Master Plan, the Judiciary not only needs four additional judges by 2014, but another facility to accommodate population growth from the military buildup.
