Guam - The recent public safety meetings with the Governor's Office and law enforcement agencies have resulted in plans to bring more uniformed presence in public schools. Public Safety Advisor Eric Palacios says they will be meeting with DOE Superintendent Dr. Nerissa Underwood to have both the local and federal government personnel help the department prepare for the upcoming school year, as well as establish new programs that allow law enforcement personnel to interact with students.

He said, "It's really just to have a greater presence in the schools and be mentors to the students, plus just having them visible in the schools knowing that the kids can turn to law enforcers, police men, firemen, customs officers, that's really the focus of some of the programs."

Palacios says this effort also hopes to deter the high number of breakin's DOE has been experiencing this past school year.
