Guam - While the Attorney General's Office has been asked to review public laws related to whether former police chief Paul Suba can return to the force and whether he meets the new criteria to be a police captain - the rank he held before he was appointed as chief - KUAM News caught up with Suba in Agat today to talk about his status and future plans.
When asked what other positions he might like to return to at the Guam Police Department, Suba replied, "There's many opportunities and many options. I could join the CAPE program. I could be a civilian reservist. I could just be a friendly citizen coming in and helping wherever." When we then asked about the prospect of returning as chief, he said, "Wow, I'm gonna render the baton, more or less, to the acting and see who else needs to come on board and take the lead, but this is a good time."
He also said there's "a strong possibility" that he may stay retired. "I'm still right now in amazement and at these great things," he said.
In the wake of the search warrant executed at the KUAM Studios in Harmon, Suba was forced to retire. Acting Governor Mike Cruz at the time said if he didn't retire he would have fired him. Upon Governor Felix Camacho's return from off-island, Camacho said he is looking into brining Suba back to GPD or somewhere else in the government.
Suba hasn't retired yet instead - he's now taking annual leave.
