Feds investigate complaints about GPD overtime

by Krystal Paco

Guam - The U.S. Department of Labor is investigating complaints relative to owed overtime at the Guam Police Department.

From November 2013 to February 2014, over one million is owed to GPD staff, some of which Chief of Police Fred Bordallo says was paid out today.

"They officially notified me that they've got a complaint and that they're consulting with their higher ups on the efforts we're making to make sure the department pays its overtime. So this is an action," he said.

Bordallo says overtime is often generated through increased frequency of calls, increase in crime, and alcohol related crimes.

He adds that patrol officers typically rack in the most overtime with the Criminal Investigations Division and Criminal Justice Strike Force coming in second and third.

He's since assured USDOL that GPD's debts will be paid out by the end of the fiscal year as he continues to work with BBMR and DOA.
