Guam – Ford Motor Company donated the required parts while Guam Triple J Ford supplied the labor and manpower to get 2 GPD patrol cars back on the street.
The vehicles had been sitting with other downed vehicles in the Department of Public Works’ Emergency Vehicle repair lot for some time.
But GPD Spokesman Officer A.J. Balajadia reports that when officials from Ford Motor Company learned of the shortage of police vehicles on Guam, they immediately began working with Triple J Ford to help get some of the much needed vehicles back on the road.
The repairs were made at no cost to GPD saving the tax payers around $3,000, says Officer Balajadia.
