Duenas bill refines law enforcement roles

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Senator Chris Duenas introduced Bill 284, which would further define law enforcement personnel, employees or positions excluded from "safe harbor" under Guam law. The bill would amend Public Law 31-28 regarding the credibility and reputation of employees in law enforcement positions and demands that a high ethical and professional code of conduct be adhered.

Senator Adolpho Palacio introduced Public Law 31-28 and is a co-sponsor for Bill 284. Duenas says it is only fitting that these employees be included in the zero tolerance policy when it comes to substance abuse for law enforcement personnel. 

He says, "the employees of Guam Homeland Security and the Office of Civil Defense are ‘first responders' as well as the lead coordinator for all agencies in times of disasters and emergencies."
