Guam - Governor Felix Camacho has appointed Frank Ishizaki as chief of police of the Guam Police Department.  Ishizaki replaces retired chief Paul Suba who was forced to step down last month. Camacho states,"Frank comes back to GPD at a time when the people of Guahan are questioning the department's commitment to serve and protect our community."

The former patrolman, Sergeant and Chief Criminalist returns to GPD for a third time. He had served as Chief of Police from January 2004 to December 2006. He also served the Camacho Administration as Director of the Department of Corrections.

Ishizaki is decorated law enforcement professional, serving most of his professional 31 year career with the Federal Bureau of Investigations as a Special Agent. Camacho says he is looking forward to working with Ishizaki to regain the public's trust in GPD. Ishizaki will also continue to serve in his capacity as Homeland Security Advisor.
