Confirmation for Ishizaki will be postponed

Guam - Acting Chief of Police Frank Ishizaki may have to step down from his position come September 22, when his appointment expires.  Legislative Committee on Law Enforcement Chairperson Senator Adolpho Palacios says he informed Ishizaki to take a drug test and submit to a polygraph examination about one month ago.

Palacios has confirmed that the acting chief hasn't even made arrangements to take a polygraph with the examiner in Hawaii.  This has forced the committee to postpone the confirmation hearing scheduled for this Friday.  "He will not have the authority to exercise the function of chief of police, I don't know what title he's going to occupy there, he probably will remain there with maybe Rick Leon Guerrero again acting," he said.

Ishizaki took the helm after the forced retirement of former police chief Paul Suba. Suba, however, didn't retire and was allowed to return to the Guam Police Department as a police captain.
