Guam - Despite assurances to the Guam Legislature that funding had been identified to pay for the promotions, Police Chief Fred Bordallo is in a predicament. Three individuals who were promoted to the rank of lieutenant back in December may have the rank, but haven't received the corresponding pay. 

Chief Bordallo says the problem is that there's no money to pay for their promotion. The top brass says he's reviewing several options that he admits includes rescinding the promotions until such time funding has been identified. Bordallo says the department cannot continue to have them perform the work of a lieutenant if they are not being paid for it.  

Former deputy chief Frank Ishizaki and acting chief Ric Leon Guerrero had pushed for the promotions making assurances that funds were available despite repeated requests by the oversight chair to hold off. Several officers also filed grievances, saying the Guam Police Department never issued announcements for the promotions.
