Guam - Paul Suba may have said he was retiring from the Guam Police Department, a press release today from the agency may also have stated that Suba has returned as a Police Captain, it turns out however that Suba is still technically the Chief of Police.

Acting Police Chief Frank Ishizaki confirmed with KUAM News today pending final approval of his GG1 from the Department of Administration for Suba to be reinstated as police captain he is still the official Chief because another GG1 that would have stopped his employment as Chief had also not been signed.  

Although acting Governor Mike Cruz forced Suba to retire, you may remember he only took annual and personal leave, meaning his paperwork for retirement was never processed.

The Department of Administration today said it would not process Suba's paperwork to be reinstated as a police captain until first receiving guidance from the Attorney General's office determing whether he's eligible for the position.

Public Safety Committee Chair Senator Adolpho Palacios authored public law last year that requires a police captain to have a college degree, something Suba does not have.
