GPD Dispatchers Relocate to the Dededo Precinct Command
On Sunday August 23, 2020, the Guam Police Department (GPD) was made aware of a Guam Fire Department (GFD) 911 dispatcher who had tested positive for COVID-19.
Out of an abundance of caution in assuring the safety of all GPD personnel assigned to the Tactical Communications Center, the GPD dispatchers will be relocating to the Dededo Precinct Command. The relocation of GPD Dispatchers will allow personnel to conduct a thorough deep cleanse of all equipment and office space.
During the relocation phase of the GPD Dispatchers to the Dededo Precinct Command, there will be no disruption of service to the greater community. GPD would like to thank the community for their patience and understanding during the transitional phase.

Anyone caught at any public parks or beaches for any reason other than subsistence fishing may be arrested and prosecuted for Criminal Trespass.
The Guam Police Department (GPD) will work with the Department of Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS) and the Office of the Attorney General to assure compliance through the duration of the “Stay-at-Home” Order.
All residents are asked to do their part to stop the spread of COVID-19 within the community by adhering to the “Stay-at-Home” Order, refraining from any social gatherings, wearing a face mask, practicing social distancing, and practicing good hygiene like washing hands frequently.
