Guam - A public hearing will be held this evening on legislation aimed at fairly compensating Chiefs of the Guam Police Department and Guam Fire Department. Bill 352 was introduced by Senator Tom Ada. The legislation was introduced to protect classified employees who have elevated to the position of Chief. According to Sen. Ada the compensation plans for Chief positions have not evolved with the qualifications required which he says has created a situation where qualified appointees must take a significant cut to serve as the Chief of their Department. Bill 352 provides that any candidate who is appointed and confirmed to the position of Chief of GFD or GPD would be compensated by a 3-year average of the candidate’s highest salaries or the current compensation level for the position of Chief, whichever is higher. The public hearing is scheduled for 6:00pm in the Legislature’s public hearing room.
