Guam - The promotions of three lieutenant positions in the Guam Police Department has raised even more concerns now that the funding source has been identified. Apparently GPD is looking to pay for the promotions using money from the Neighborhood Patrol Command and the Fleet Vehicle Maintenance Fund.

In a memo to Acting Chief Ric Leon Guerrero, Captain Mark Charfauros expresses serious concerns with the decision as patrol vehicles have been breaking down on a daily basis and there's no funding for overtime. Public Safety Chair Senator Adolpho Palacios meanwhile sent his own letter, urging GPD to spend the money lawmakers appropriated to them to repair police cruisers and motorcycles instead of funding the promotions.
