Guam - The Peace Officer Standards and Training Commission selected Dennis Santo Tomas to serve as its executive director. Santo Tomas is employed at the Guam Community College and is the former director of Guam Customs during the Camacho Administration.

The POST Commission is tasked with setting the standards including the rules, regulations for all local law enforcement. "I think I'll just continue that effort that's ongoing that I saw today, I see a unified effort I see information sharing I see people sharing ideas on how we can make law enforcement on this island better with less resources of course because we don't have the resources we need but we're sharing ideas we're sharing resources and sharing thought that I think working together we can build a working and training education framework for the law enforcement community," he said.

During today's meeting discussions focused on the definition of a peace officer and who exactly are peace officers. Discussion on this topic as well as training and education standards will continue during their next meeting scheduled for October 25.
