Guam - Speaker Judi Won Pat says as a result of last weeks' meeting, the Guam Police Department will spearhead efforts to conduct an assessment to determine risk areas and the most feasible approach to secure the island's public schools.

She said in her radio address, "I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all the agency representatives who were present for their willingness to help make our public schools safer. We were able to share ideas and strategize the best approach in moving forward."

Won Pat says bureau chief for police operations Major Ric Leon Guerrero is excited to participate in the risk assessment tour and make recommendations on where security equipment such as cameras, floodlights, and alarms should be placed. She added after the meeting DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez said he's looking forward to having the assistance of our law enforcement partners to provide a more responsible and realistic set off recommendations regarding how they might best protect our schools. The assessment will begin on the 17th.
