Guam - Officials with the Guam Police Department, Guam Customs and Quarantine and the Guam Judiciary are learning when to shoot and when to hold fire. Guam Community College instructor and retired police officer Ray Fernandez says the training was made possible through a $330,000 Carl Perkins federal grant. The training allows officers as well as new recruits to use the state of the art firing system technology.

Said Fernandez, "We want to make sure that the officers on our island are taken care of are trained properly so that we can make that good decision not something that may be detrimental but good, fair, sound decision when it comes down to law enforcement and the use of deadly force."

He adds that they are also using the funding to purchase an emergency vehicle operator course driving simulator.
