VIDEO: Vice Speaker Disappointed With GPD’s Response to His Request for an ‘Optimal Budget’


Guam – Vice Speaker B.J. Cruz is disappointed with the response he received from the Guam Police Department to his request for an “optimal budget.”

The Senator says he was trying to find out what the police department needs to fulfill all their core mandates. But he said that GPD responded  by telling him “We don’t have anything called an ‘Optimal Budget.”

The Senator said he hopes to be able to present to his committee the “actual” amount of funding needed by GPD,  rather than the budget ceiling set by BBMR. He called GPD’s response “unhelpful”.
