Who pays for Ishizaki's polygraph test?

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Police Chief Frank Ishizaki says he's waiting for someone to pay for his polygraph to be conducted. The Public Safety Committee had scheduled a confirmation hearing for tomorrow, but because the acting top brass hasn't taken the polygraph in Hawaii, the hearing was postponed.

Ishizaki tells KUAM News he'd like lawmakers to consider the test he took when he was first appointed police chief.  "I don't see the need of a full-blown confirmation process when I would be serving for three months and I think whoever the new governor is that they deserve to start with a clean slate," he shared. "And it's not my intention to compete for that position at that time."

He has concerns because his position isn't even funded.  Ishizaki says Governor Felix Camacho is pushing lawmakers to allow him to remain in the position through the end of the year, based on his previous background and polygraph results.  Oversight chair Senator Adolpho Palacios, however, has said the law requires a new test.

Ishizaki's appointment expires on September 22.
