Guam -.Some of the findings included for public safety in the Calvo Administration's transition subcommittee reports cite that the Guam Police Department is barely providing the level of public service outlined within their legislative authority. The report states the biggest problem is the decaying morale and rise in disrespectful attitude within the chain of command.
The report calls for the need in increased ability to respond to police calls in a timely manner, another issue is the lack of funding similar to the problems the Guam Fire Department faces. The report states that GFD suffers from a lack of vehicles and equipment, they are 96 firefighters short, and have suffered from a loss of about $300,000 per month due to the hold up in implementing the ambulance billing fee.
GFD was called out for poor management on account of the previous fire chief Dave Peredo, as was former Department of Corrections director J.B. Palacios who was named in the document for not keeping his promises.
The report states that DepCor needs to control overtime as it owes more than $1.6 million to its officers.
