Guam - Two police officers have been served adverse action for allegedly not being forthcoming about where they were while on leave from the force.  KUAM News has learned that a police officer was demoted while another was suspended for allegedly falsifying medical leave by getting a doctor's note and for traveling off-island unbeknownst to the agency while claiming sick leave.

Several months ago, members of the Guam Police Department's Government Corruption Task Force executed a search warrant at the Department of Administration's Payroll Offices.  Task Force agents obtained copies of timesheets and other documents related to their investigation and conducted interviews.  The two officers are assigned to the Hagatna Precinct.

GPD Spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia could not provide any details about the action taken, saying it is a personnel matter that cannot be disclosed.
