Guam - An outspoken critic during his confirmation, Captain Fred Bordallo is asking Chief of Police Paul Suba to do the honorable thing and retire from the Guam Police Department. In what he calls "A Letter of Appreciation" penned to Chief Suba today, he says he believes "that it is time to reach out and salvage our department's relations with the news media, because we need positive relations with the media for effective community relations."

"I believe," Bordallo continues, "that there needs to be a healing process with the media, and that can only happen, with a change of leadership with the Guam Police Department.

Captain Bordallo joins others who have called for Suba to step down including Vice-Speaker B.J. Cruz and Lieutenant Governor Mike Cruz.

KUAM has filed suit against GPD after executing a search warrant at the KUAM Studios in Harmon, which contend was done in contravention to the federal Privacy Protection Act of 1980.
