Guam - The Guam Police Department is conducting a criminal and an internal investigation into a disturbance complaint that was reported last week.  Police Captain Tim Santos filed a disturbance complaint based on information he received that a female police officer was involved in a family violence incident.  

GPD Spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia confirms the department is conducting an internal investigation because the complaint involves a GPD staff member. The criminal investigation is ongoing as well and police are not releasing any further information. 

Local media outlets and the governor received an anonymous letter detailing an alleged cover-up, even naming Captain Mark Charfauros as one of the officers who had knowledge of an incident but conspired to cover it up instead of reporting the incident. 

Captain Charfauros told KUAM News today he has not been a witness to any type of family violence.
