Cop placed on administrative leave

Guam - A police officer assigned to the Tumon-Tamuning Precinct has been placed on administrative leave and his duty weapon and badge have been taken away.  The officer is the subject of an ongoing Internal Affairs investigation following recent random drug testing of more than 50 police officers on the force. 

Police Chief Fred Bordallo told KUAM News, "We've launched an internal investigation into an unofficial report of information that came to me regarding a member of the Tamuning-Tumon Precinct testing positive."

The top brass says the agency has not received any official test results from the Department of Administration, but the officer is currently under investigation. The department has a zero-tolerance policy for drug use.  The officer was placed on leave a week ago.
