Guam - Lawmakers began debate on several bills including Bill 63. The measure was introduced by former police officer Senator Adolpho Palacios and would exclude law enforcement personnel, employees and position from the Government of Guam's Drug-Free Safe Harbor Program.
Several senators testified in support of the measure supporting the idea that public safety personnel should be held to a higher standard. Former Chief of Public Safety Senator Judi Guthertz says its time for this bill, telling KUAM News, "We need our law enforcement community to be disciplined to be respectful of the public and to uphold the dignity of the badges that they're sworn to wear.
"In a way, that brings respect to the organizations and the people they respect."
