Guam - The Civil Service Commission will conduct a pre-hearing on Tuesday for four police officers who were stripped of their badges and guns and demoted to civilian status. Captain Mark Charfauros and Officers Tracey Volta, J.P. Duenas and Jeff Santos were demoted after the department said they failed to meet the necessary requirements when they were rehired with the force.

Volta is the only officer who underwent a polygraph examination and a psychological evaluation and has since gotten his badge and gun back to return to police duties. GPD Spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia says other officers who quit the force and returned have also been identified.  Balajadia says management is trying to determine who will be required to undergo the requirements and be pulled off of their duties.

The pre-hearing will be held Tuesday at 2pm at the Civil Service Commission. The attorney for the four officers is reviewing the possibility of filing a lawsuit against the police department.
