Governor looks for police chief replacement

Guam - Governor Felix Camacho says he's looking at options for who will run the Guam Police Department for the last three months of his administration.  Acting Police Chief Frank Ishizaki is declining to proceed with the legislative confirmation process, saying he doesn't want to go through another contentious hearing as he did in the past as he's worn out from holding the post along with his title as Homeland Security Adviser.

Governor Camacho says he doesn't blame Ishizaki for feeling the way he does, telling KUAM News, "He's doing GPD. He's doing Homeland Security and other issues. And then to have to go through a legislative process of confirmation for three months remaining in this term, it's just not right. I can't blame him. So I support him in his decision not to proceed."

The governor mentioned possibly tapping Acting Police Commander Major Ric Leon Guerrero for a second time. Camacho confirms though that putting Captain Paul Suba back as the top brass would "not be possible".

Ishizaki's appointment expires on September 22.
