8,800 arrests made by GPD in last three years

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - In the last three years, the Guam Police Department has made more than 8,800 arrests. 1,600 of those were made for family violence and police believe more than half of the crimes are drug-related. 

According to information compiled by the Calvo Administration, Customs and Quarantine officers confiscated $15 million worth of the drug Ice last year alone. Crystal methamphetamine continues to be the primary drug on the island. 

Police Chief Fred Bordallo told KUAM News, "The focal point of what we are doing of fighting this crime every day and this report and dedicated so much patrol hours, so much time in follow up investigations of these violent crimes and robberies, I believe we are going to make a dent in our statistics."

As Governor Eddie Calvo mentioned in his State of the Island Address, his administration has outlined both short- and long-term solutions that include hiring more police officers to provide a stronger law enforcement presence, hiring more corrections officers and expanding the existing prison facility.
