Guam - The Guam Police Department will not discuss personnel matters or respond to allegations of corruption that were made by Sergeant James Santos. The officer submitted a letter to Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo, calling for a federal probe into alleged unlawful activity by upper management at the police department.
He named Acting Chief Ric Leon Guerrero, Deputy Police Chief Frank Ishizaki, Captain Kim Santos and members of the Government Corruption Task Force. Santos also referred to the GPD raid of the KUAM Studios. He was recently demoted from his lieutenant position for allegedly having outside employment while on government time.
GPD Spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia says the agency does acknowledge the personal right of the police officer alleging the misconduct to file his request for a federal probe into the allegations. Additionally he said they are not at liberty to discuss the case involving the issuance of a search warrant at KUAM.
