Guam - For years the Department of Youth Affairs has managed with only physical manpower for security, but come mid-January, can look forward to over $60,000 in federally funded camera systems.

With a number of escaped DYA clients reported over the last year, DYA director Adonis Mendiola has high hopes for the newly installed equipment.

"We'd like to think that the security systems that we're going to be putting in place will go far for the morale and welfare for not only our clients who are under our supervision, care, and custody but also for the staff," he shared.

Mendiola says 34 cameras will be installed throughout the Mangilao facility, some with not just video, but audio too.
