Office of the Attorney General of Guam

Attorney General Doug Moylan is pushing for the public to report panhandling.

According to a release from the Office of the Attorney General , the Guam Police Department, the OAG, and the Mayor’s Council of Guam will now actively enforce the Aggressive Panhandling Act of 2013 at all road intersections.

According to the release from the OAG, Guam law prohibits panhandling on traffic medians, and limits the use of the use of the sidewalks around road intersections.

The release further encourages Guam Residents that, if they see panhandling activity at said road intersections, to call their village police precinct or village mayor’s office.

According to the OAG, this enforcement initiative is intended to protect everyone around road intersections.
