Video captures Port Police sleeping at work

Guam - KUAM has received viewer videos and pictures of Port Authority of Guam police officers who appear to be sleeping while at work. It's not clear however whether they were sleeping while on duty, while on their break or during their lunch hour.

In one video an officer is shown sitting on a chair in an office sleeping. He was not the only one caught on camera. In a picture another officer is shown sleeping in a car. Two other port police officers were shown sleeping in what appears to be an office.

Port Authority General Manager Joanne Brown is currently off island. She spoke with KUAM over the phone. She was not aware of the videos or pictures. She said that while the port has 340 employees she doesn't sit around and babysit everyone. She added that employees should be performing their expected duties. She says no one should be sleeping on the job, but again she has not seen the video, so she did not want to comment further. She did say however that if an employee is acting improperly on the job, there is a personnel procedure that needs to be followed.

 KUAM in the meantime did forward the video and pictures to Deputy Port General Manager Felix Pangelinan. He says he will need to determine where the videos were taken and if the port police officers were on duty. "We have an expectation of all Port employees to be doing their jobs while on the clock," he commented. "If it is determined that they were on duty, proper administrative action will be taken against the officers," Pangelinan added.

    Government wants full payment from Ray Charles Tedtaotao Camacho

    It's a $750 wedding ring, but its significance and meaning, priceless. While Ray Charles Tedtaotao Camacho is serving life behind bars, the government argues he's not being held fully accountable for his crimes. Five years ago, Camacho kidnapped and raped Monique Baza after she made a quick run to the bakery for bread. Though it's a minimal amount for the ring that was never recovered, defense has motioned to waive restitution.  The government, in its response this week, argued ...More >>
