Ishizaki: legislation handicaps GPD

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Deputy Police Chief Frank Ishizaki responded to the passage of Bill 466, saying he believes the removal of the unclassified deputy chief position is another effort by the Guam Legislature to further erode the authority of the governor and hinder future leadership at the Guam Police Department. 

Ishizaki tells KUAM News that he believes the sponsor of the legislation, Public Safety Chairman Senator Adolpho Palacios, should work on helping and not hindering the department by finding money to build the headquarters facility, pay police salaries and overtime and expand the crime lab. 

He added that other bills could be considered to authorize the issuance of citations for misdemeanor and petty misdemeanor offenses and allow the use of those revenues for capitol improvement projects.
