Guam - Public Safety Oversight Chair Senator Adolpho Palacios is making a plea to Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo and Assistant Secretary of the Interior on Insular Affairs Tony Babauta to urge the Federal Aviation Administration to extend the lease for the Guam Police Department for another two years. In the letter, Palacios states that in the next few months there may be some negative impacts of public safety services for the people of Guam if the matter is not addressed.
GPD's lease with the airport expires in September. Palacios says the extension will allow the police department the time needed to identify a permanent location for its headquarters.
