Police chief: cops, witnesses questioned

Guam - Chief of Police Fred Bordallo is assuring the community that his officers are doing their part in policing themselves. The recent controversy at the Royal Gardens Condominiums called into question whether a high-ranking officer may have exercised her influence in a police investigation that started with just one single arrest, it was after Josh Cruz hired an attorney and filed a counter criminal complaint that an additional five would later be arrested.

Those five - Victor Ibarra, Marcos Martinez, William Stinnett III, Kenneth Davo-Roberts And Derin Joy Santos. "Right now, as I understand the internal affairs investigation s on going. And in terms of the investigation there's going to be some questions that will be asked of several officers that were involved in responding to that disturbance," said the chief.

GPD announced this week that Captain Kim Santos was cleared of any interference. But this latest investigation follows a string of separate internal affairs investigations that have been launched over the last several weeks. The reports have prompted the chief to meet with his people. "I've dropped by several areas of the department I've paid a visit recently to the Marine Patrol, to Dededo Precinct and talked to precinct commander up there," he said. "I also talk to precinct commander at my office at Tamuning Precinct and convey to the offers they should just perform their duties stay motivated."

The chief says his officers face challenges everyday, and whether you're at the bottom or top of the ladder. Everyone should be held accountable for their actions and treat everyone with respect. "They have a responsibility to make sure that the service they provide to the public is excellent and satisfactory and consistent of the laws of our island," said Bordallo.
