Guam - The Mayors Council of Guam is hoping to tap on returning soldiers to deter crime on the streets.

According to MCOG executive director Angel Sablan, he's been in talks with Guam National Guard Adjutant General Benny Paulino on the possibility of getting our unemployed troops to augment the shortage of GPD staff patrolling the villages.

"I've talked to the adjutant general and I asked him these people who are coming out of deployment, we're all talking about them being unemployment. They're already trained in law enforcement and in military needs and practices. Why can't we look at them and see if we can make a special deputization to become law enforcement or a volunteer? And bring them on board," he said.

Sablan adds that Police Chief Fred Bordallo has already committed the recent police reservists grads to patrol the streets as well.
