Guam - A grievance filed with the Guam Police Department by Police Officer Trainee John Edwards has not yet made it to the acting chief of police's desk. Acting Chief Ricardo Leon Guerrero says he hasn't read the grievance Edwards filed, but he can't comment as the process must take its course. Edwards filed the grievance claiming the department violated his privacy rights.
Meanwhile, he remains on the job despite having deceptive results on his polygraph examination.
The acting chief confirms Edwards is undergoing on-the-job training, telling KUAM News, "The training that he'll be receiving is how [the Criminal Investigation Division] works, how Juvenile works, and eventually he'll go to the different precincts, to get the geographical know how of each respective precinct and that takes about a months' time then after that we can reassign him."
Edwards has asked for an administrative review of the polygraph exam, as he hired an independent polygrapher, who says his test was "inconclusive".
Guam High School and surrounding homes at Naval Hospital have been evacuated after a bomb threat is called in Thursday afternoon. The threat specifically targeted the school. GPD and Navy police are sweeping the area with K-9 units. The Naval Base Guam Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit is standing by in the event anything is found. Guam Homeland Security officials say all measures are being taken to ensure the safety of the public and first responders involved.More >>
