Posted: Updated:

Guam - Guam Police Department Captain Mark Charfauros remains on a temporary detail to the Department of Corrections, where he drafted legislation that would identify funding sources for a new prison. DepCor officials say the bill is currently under review by that agency's director and will then be forwarded to the governor.   Since completing his assignment, Charfauros has been tasked to look at other grant funding opportunities for the Department of Corrections.

The former senator was put on a 90-day detail but there may be efforts to extend his detail as DOC is currently without any captains as two recently retired and another is on extended medical leave.
