Guam - The A.B. Won Pat International Airport is one of the safest airports if ever put in an active shooter situation. That's according to airport chief of police Bob Camacho who says GIAA is now strengthening their policies and procedures when responding to the terroristic type event. The Airport Police brought airline representative, tenants and other law enforcement together today to run through scenarios and discuss response procedures.

He says participants were tasked with coming up with the strengths and weaknesses so that they can ensure there is no chaos and miscommunication in the event of an active shooter at the airport. "The situation of whether or not we are ready is dependent on the type of threat we have but i know our officers area trained to respond to any active shooter and the collaborative effort is a work in progress and we still have to work on what each individuals responsibility is," he explained.

Camacho adds the airport will be conducting mock active shooter exercises in the coming weeks.
