$190,000 needed to maintain police fleet

Guam - $190,000 is how much the Guam Police Department needs to keep its existing patrol fleet running. GPD's Support Division Lieutenant Andrew Quitugua says the problem is that they need the proper equipment in order to continue using the aged vehicles. But it seems there's more units sitting at the department's motor pool rather than out patrolling the streets.

Quitugua says there is about 24 motorcycles and 30 patrol cars awaiting parts. He says that 16 additional units on the lot have already been surveyed with the General Services Agency. Despite the shortage, Quitugua does say that they are anticipating 14 new Crown Victorias purchased with compact impact funds later this month.
