Guam - After undergoing months of training, 32 civilian volunteer police reservists were sworn-in this morning at Adelup. Governor Eddie Calvo administered the Oath of Office and recognized the men and women for their dedication to protecting the island by serving on the Guam Police Department. 

Police Chief Fred Bordallo stated, "These civilian police reserve officers are putting their lives on the line for the community of Guam. They are going to be subjected to the same risk that full time officers go through each and every day of their lives. I told them they're special in being selected because they've met my standards of being mentally qualified."

The new reservists now bring the total number in the department to a little over one hundred.  One of the newly sworn reservists includes the brother of the late Frankie E. Smith, who was killed in the line of duty five years ago.  Gerald Smith says he joined the department to fulfill a promise he made to his late brother.

The reservists were presented with badges and will undergo additional training over the course of the next few weeks.
