Chief disappointed with complaints against cops

Guam - Police Chief Fred Bordallo isn't pleased that his police officers are making news almost as frequently as the criminals they're picking up. With the recent arrest of several officers, the top brass admits it's been a challenge to ensure that the rank and file are not only acting professionally but walking a straight line. 

Bordallo says he's disappointed when any of his officers are accused of crossing the line but stresses they are not above the law. "For the public to have faith and confidence in the police department, I believe they want to see that we will do what we have to do and conduct professional investigations and when it turns out there's enough probable cause for an officer to be arrested, the officers will be arrested just like any other member of the public that commits the same type of offense," he told KUAM News.

Chief Bordallo says he is encouraging leadership in the department to talk to their subordinates and remind them that they must comply with the very laws they're sworn to uphold.
