Guam - Public safety chairperson Senator Adolpho Palacios says a further review might be needed into allegations of test tampering related to the Guam Fire Department Recruit Test. Several tips sent to KUAM News allege a handful of people were given the test questions prior to the exam.
Department of Administration acting human relations administrator Rose Cruz said the allegations lacked evidence and were determined to be unfounded. Palacios said, "To me, it should go beyond that. I'm following this story very closely and appears to me that a time will come soon that I'm going to have to make a formal request to the Attorney General's Office to send one of their investigators. To go down and make an inquiry."
According to Senator Palacios, the allegations are serious enough to compromise the screening process. "And we have to preserve the integrity of the selection process. This put a question on the selection process and we have to answer that question as a no or a yes, and if there's a person responsible for compromising the selection process then they should be punishment to that person," he said.
According to DOA there are about 800 people scheduled to take the test.
