Guam - The residents of Barrigada today took the time to honor and say thank you to several officers of the Guam Police Department and the village mayor's office for keeping the community safe. The officers were given citizens certificates of appreciation for their involvement in solving a rash of crimes in the central village.
One of those victims is Barrigada resident Wil Castro, who said, "Al kinds of bad things were happening, and I gotta tell you there are not enough words to describe to you what happened to many of us. But thanks to a couple of folks in the department, they really pulled their resources together and Barrigada is a better place for it."
Ten police officers were recognized this morning by several Barrigada families who were victims of crimes including the Gumabon Family, Castro, Aguon and Santos families.
