Guam - He's the Guam Police Department's latest addition to combat and deter crime on island.

In a press conference today, GPD introduced crime analyst Preciliano M. Ruiz.

Using his extensive background as a Navy captain and intelligence officer as well as his background as a GPD administrative assistant, Ruiz says he's already hard at work analyzing the police blotter to understand criminal behavior.

"The leading two crimes on Guam is burglary from January to August in total is 1,094 and theft of property at 1,090. This should be the focus of crime analysis. By knowing this my second step is to open the police reports, identify where this happened, when this happened, and interview the victims and if possible if the offenders are arrested, I have to go to DOC," he said.

Ruiz will assist GPD in identifying existing crime patterns, increasing the numbers of cases cleared, providing investigative leads for investigators, and helping with planning and deployment of resources.
