Guam - A grievance was filed with the Civil Service Commission this week on behalf of the four police officers who were stripped of their badges and guns and demoted to civilian status. Police Captain Mark Charfauros and Officers Jeff Santos, Tracey Volta and J.P. Duenas were told that when they returned to the police force they didn't meet the necessary requirements to return as officers.
The Guam Federation of Teachers hired Attorney William Pole, who says they want to know if the department's actions were intentional or just plain negligence. A conference hearing is scheduled before the commission on December 21.
In the meantime, Pole says they are still reviewing their options to determine if they will bring the issue to the Superior Court or even the District Court.
