Guam - The Judicial Center is kicking-off the planning phase for the implementation of its Driving While Under the Influence Court. The DWI Court follows the recent implementation of the new Booked & Confined Policy.

Department of Corrections Director J.B. Palacios says they will be meeting with Chief Justice Robert Torres next week to discuss the next steps. He also says the DWI Court may be located in the Judicial Center in Hagatna, as the "Drunk Tanks" will be at the Agana Lockup.

"It's closer to the Drunk Tanks, and therefore taxpayer resources are minimized as far as used travel time and what not because its easy accessibility," he said.

The meeting will be held at the court on September 2 at 2pm.
