Guam - Understanding that morale is low within the rank and file of the Guam Police Department and recognizing the significant shortage of officers to patrol the streets, Police Chief Nominee Captain Fred Bordallo has issued a challenge. He stated, "I'm challenging those who are thinking of leaving the department to stay in. It's going to get better.

"I'm challenging our Administrative Division in charge of recruitment program and our personnel officers - let's get an aggressive recruitment program so we have people who are interested."

Bordallo says he will also support specialized units changing their hours to augment patrol officers.  The top brass, if confirmed by the Guam Legislature, says he will also work with the University of Guam to conduct another public confidence survey to identify GPD's strengths, weaknesses and areas of improvement.
