Guam - The island's public safety agencies went before lawmakers this afternoon over the impacts the military buildup may have on their departments based on the Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement. Chief of Polce Fred Bordallo noted concerns over vehicle fleet and the need for officers whereas Department of Corrections director Jose San Agustin spoke on the need for a new facility.
