Bill requires public safety officials to shape up

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Senator Frank Aguon Jr. has introduced legislation that would require public safety and law enforcement officials to literally shape up.

Called the "Fit to Serve and Protect Act of 2014," the measure proposes establishing physical fitness standards and policies and a task force headed by the chief of police to establish these standards.

We should note, former senator Adolpho Palacios introduced the "Fit to Serve and Protect Act of 2011." This legislation went up for public hearing, but never made it to session floor.

Palacios states that Bill 310 is an improvement to his bill, noting that such physical standards are not only good for the person and the government, but the people being served.
