Guam - Amidst the mounting controversy caused by the Guam Police Department executing a search warrant at the KUAM Studios in Harmon on May 12, Acting Governor Mike Cruz has announced that Paul Suba has retired as chief of the Guam Police Department.  

Major Rick Leon Guerrero has been named GPD's new chief.

Cruz's office issued the following statement: "In consultation with Governor Camacho, I accepted Police Chief Paul Suba's request for retirement this afternoon. The Guam Police Department is made up of honorable men and women who serve our community, work to keep us safe, and do so at great sacrifice to themselves and their families. Though today's events will mean a change in GPD's leadership, nothing will change my faith in the men and women of that department.

"I want to thank Chief Suba for his many years of service to our people. I have appointed Major Rick Leon Guerrero, who is currently serving as acting police commander to now serve as acting chief of police until a permanent replacement can be appointed and confirmed. As a veteran of the police force and retired command sergeant major of the Guam Army National Guard, I am confident that Acting Chief Leon Guerrero can restore the public's confidence in our police department, reaffirm the department's commitment to public safety, and root out corruption wherever it may exist."
