New fees proposed for GPD

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Because the Guam Police Department's Records & Identification Section is losing more than $392,000 in revenues each year, the agency has proposed a revised fee adjustment. The average annual administrative cost for the section is approximately $937,000, but the annual revenue generated is only about $544,000. 

GPD officials intend to distribute the recoverable cost throughout the fee schedule in areas that show sustained revenue potential. This means the cost of a police clearance will go up by $5 to $12. A concealed firearms permit will now cost $103. Traffic accident reports will go from the current $15 to $26, and a special event fee increases to $172, with boat registration will go up $14 to $34. 

To comment on the nine fees that are affected by the adjustment, the public is invited to the public hearing on Wednesday at the Civil Service Commission's Public Hearing Room in Sinajana from 1-3pm.
