Guam - A detailed brief about the deficiencies at the Guam Police Department has surfaced. Calvo-Tenorio Transition Team chairman for the Subcommittee on Safety Adolf Sgambelluri in the brief states that GPD is an organization revealed to be floundering, uncohesive, divided, dysfunctional and leaderless. He states that the team observed difficulties and individual personnel problems.

He also points out the need to annually update the strategic police planning efforts, as he says it serves as the road map for the department and its management. Sgambelluri also makes mention of the three police lieutenant positions that raised concern as well as the lack of funding for police vehicle repairs and facility upgrades.

While Sgambelluri calls GPD management weak and manipulative, Governor Felix Camacho disagrees, telling KUAM News, "Individuals like Adolfo Sgambelluri that were very insulting to our public safety directors, our cabinet members, are unnecessary. But if individuals like Sgambelluri are the face of Governor-elect Calvo in representing him to the administration in transition, I think it's a bad choice."

In response to Camacho, Sgambelluri tells KUAM News, "Good riddance, he's done enough damage to the people and government during his administration."
