Police in Neighborhoods programs stymied by Worker's Comp

Guam - A year in the making GHURA's Police in Neighborhoods program has come to a roadblock. As we reported the program would provide an opportunity for police officers to reside within a GHURA community for little to no rent in exchange for their services in monitoring the neighborhood but an issue has arisen which has the program at a standstill.

GHURA director Michael Duenas said, "As a result of all those reviews what is coming out is a scenario that says we think this individual is going to be an employee of GHURA and GHURA should provide for Worker's Comp and when we reached that stage it became evident that given their policies the program is not really going to be able to advance."

Duenas says they are not asking the officers to be employees of GHURA instead asking them to perform their duties as an officer and provide reports to us of their activities. According to Duenas it is because of these reports the position is that makes them employees of GHURA. Duenas says they are trying to look into ways of resolving this impasse.
