Guam - Results from random drug testing within the police department could be in any day now. Chief of police Fred Bordallo confirms 50 employees underwent testing last week.  Bordallo is sending a message to the public that law enforcement is following the law. He adds they are leading by example.

"That we're not going to tolerate any drug abuse or any illegal abuse in the Guam Police Department," Bordallo told KUAM News.

As we reported tests were conducted last week.  Bordallo says it typically takes 4-5 working days to get the results. We should officers are no longer eligible for safe harbor that had previously allowed them to come forward admitting drug use and undergo drug rehabilitation and not be terminated or disciplined.
