Guam - Police Chief Fred Bordallo called a meeting with the island's law enforcement and private security organizations today in hopes to establish improved coordination to respond to crime and homeland security threats. Several dozen representatives attended today's meeting discussing how to collaborate with information and intelligence sharing and mutual assistance to better respond to emergencies.
"What's also significant when it comes down to coordination is understanding the limitations that private security may have, the limitations and understanding GPD's limitations so it's essential that we sort of like maybe bring that to surface on some of the challenges on maybe some instances where coordination is a challenge," he said.
GPD officials also discussed the use of less than lethal weapons such as tasers that are also being implemented by the Guam Police Department.
