Guam - The Guam Police Department has less than half of its patrol vehicles operational. According to GPD Spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia, the Agat Precinct only has four patrol vehicles, Hagatna has three, Tumon-Tamuning has seven, Dededo has four and the Highway Patrol Division has five operable vehicles.

With 23 up and running, GPD is still working to repair the 27 patrol cars not in service. Balajadia says $200,000 from the DPW Highway Bond was spent to repair the downed units, which he says are now waiting for parts.
