Guam - Police Chief Fred Bordallo is back on island after attending the Law Enforcement Executive Development Seminar in Quantico, Virginia.  The Federal Bureau of Investigation Academy provides the training to police chiefs engaging them in discussions about leadership, strategic planning, legal and social issues and police programs.

Bordallo says he intends to implement some of the new programs he learned about including a health and wellness strategy and implementing a policy about the use of social media. "There have been sometimes you can have something posted on Facebook, a picture of a scene that an agent has, and that's totally something that should not be done. Or something that is of operational security," he explained.

Currently the Guam Police Department lacks a policy on the use of social media by members of the force.  Bordallo says he hopes to implement a model similar to the International Chiefs of Police Association.
