Operation Blue Fire Begins; Capt Suba Says There Will Be No Tolerance


Guam – Look for more police presence on the streets, and more tickets to be issued in the weeks ahead.

Operation “Blue Fire” is back, after a 10 year absence.It resumed on Monday.

GPD’s Highway Patrol Division Commander Capt. Paul Suba says they have been ordered to implement a zero tolerance policy.

“The warnings have been given.” said Suba. “The time for warnings is over.”

Capt. Suba said the crackdown includes speeding DUI and seat belt enforcement on the major roadways as well as neighborhood patrols, ticketing pedestrians and bikers who violate traffic laws and stepped up neighborhood patrols.

GPD says the reason for the return of the operation  “Blue Fire” is to make the streets more safe for all.

And to try and stem the series of traffic tragedies that have claimed the lives of 6 people on Guam’s roadways since the start of this year.
