Guam - Chief of Police Fred Bordallo and Guam Homeland Security Advisor James McDonald are headed to Aspen, Colorado this week to attend a security summit. Homeland Security Advisor Janet Napolitano is expected to be among the defense and security officials in attendance at the conference, hosted by the Aspen Institute.
Chief Bordallo says the conference is aimed at discussing homeland security, counterterrorism and the challenges each state and territory faces in preparing their communities for potential threats to security. "This will be the first time that Guam has had the opportunity to be in that conference and to exchange and network with some of the other state and federal officials that will be in attendance there," he noted.
Following the conference in Colorado, Chief Bordallo will then head to Washington, DC to attend the community orientated policing conference.
