Guam - The clock is ticking for the Guam Police Department to move its headquarters out of Tiyan. Lieutenant Governor Ray Tenorio says the department's move is a priority for the Administration but officials still haven't made a decision where the temporary headquarters will be. The police department must vacate the airport premises in Tiyan by the end of the September. 

Additionally the department received no additional money to pay for a lease or moving expenses. "We are making sure we weigh all our options and looking at all possibilities, the move will be made in time so that the airport will be able to us the grant funds to demolish the building without jeopardizing their operations," said Tenorio.

The former Customs facility is still an option as the lieutenant governor says he does not want to move GPD to a remote area. While he couldn't say when a decision would be made, Tenorio says one will be made in adequate time and in the most financially and practical way possible to ensure no additional burdens on the Government of Guam.
