Guam - The Department of Corrections is playing catch up to pay its officers overtime owed for the previous and current fiscal year. DepCor Spokesperson Lieutenant Antone Aguon says this past Friday the agency was able to pay about $300,000 in overtime to its officers for the current fiscal year.

He adds the agency still owes some $200,000 in OT, as well as $1.3 million for OT not paid out last fiscal year. Aguon also admits he does not see the overtime issue getting better anytime soon, adding, "Our overtime biweekly is about $356,000, so we are just trying to hold stable at that, but of course we are losing some personnel, we've already lost five that are being deployed so if we are not able to fill those positions then of course overtime will go up."

Aguon adds the remainder of the overtime owed will be paid out as soon as the department finds the funding.
