Cops owed wages ask for prompt payment

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - Three police officers who are owed more than $60,000 in detail pay have asked a Superior Court judge to order the chief of police to file their GG1s so they can be paid.  Retired sergeant Herman Garrido, Sergeant James Buccat and Sergeant Paul Sayama filed a special proceedings case against the Guam Police Department. 

The three were performing duties of higher ranks for several years and were already deemed by the Department of Administration to be entitled to the pay for the work they performed.

During a hearing this morning, the Attorney General's Office indicated it needed 60 days to respond to the officers' request for an alternative writ of mandate.  Judge Elizabeth Barrett Anderson ordered the parties to appear back in court for a scheduling conference on August 18.
