Posted: Updated:

Guam - Department of Corrections Director Jose San Agustin has sent the Guam Police Department as well as other law enforcement agencies a proposed policy he is hoping to implement in the next few weeks. According to DOC Spokesperson Lt. Antone Aguon the proposed policy sent out this week would require that arrestees that are under the influence first be taken to the Guam Memorial Hospital to receive a medical clearance before being detained at the Hagatna Detention Facility. Lt. Aguon adds the proposed policy is due to instances in which DOC officers have had to deal with detainees that go through withdrawals and sometimes experience alcohol poisoning. They are incidents of grave concern to DOC because they do not have medical staff on duty at night at the Hagatna facility.
