Guam - The Department of Corrections and the Department of Youth Affairs are hoping to relieve the staffing shortage the two agencies has been suffering from in the past few years. As part of Corrections Week, the agencies held a graduation ceremony for the 23 recruits from DepCor and 6 recruits from DYA for their successful completion of the basic training course.

The selection of the recruits was criticized for scoring lower than others who applied for the job and were not selected. DepCor director J.B. Palacios has said that the selections were made by the top management of the department and every recruit was chosen after an extensive background check.

Palacios adds that this is the largest group of hires in the history of the department.
