Guam - The Guam Police Department is in receipt of three brand new Crown Victoria Interceptors that were procured by the Guam Police Department with federal funding allocated to them from the Office of Highway Safety. The units come fully outfitted with GPD logos, sirens and lights and cost $33,000 each.

Chief of Police Fred Bordallo says the units will be used in the Highway Patrol Section for traffic enforcement. DPW director Joanne Brown said, "Today is one of numerous days that we are able through federal funding programs that we are able to provide additional equipment and resources to our fellow law enforcement officers."  

The governor and lt. governor also took one of the units for a test drive with the chief of police and the DPW directors in the back seat. This donation now brings GPD's fleet up to 180 vehicles including both operational and grounded units.
