Acting Governor Ray Tenorio, the Guam Police Department, and the Talofofo Mayor’s Office celebrated the reopening of the Talofofo police koban yesterday. The koban had previously been closed for more than two decades.
“This is a big win not only for the village of Talofofo, but for our island as we make our communities a safer place for our residents,” Acting Governor Tenorio said. “As we celebrate our officers’ new home in Talofofo, we also celebrate the many more resources it provides to the southern part of Guam.”
The koban will allow officers to respond faster to Talofofo and the surrounding villages and will give GPD greater patrol presence in the area. Renovations to the police koban were made possible through donations from the community.
“I’d like to thank Attorney David Lujan, Valley of the Latte Park, David Tydingco, Shawn Gumataotao, Francisco Duenas, and the Navy Munitions Command for their support,” Talofofo Mayor Vicente Taitague said. “Through their generosity, our village will be a safer place.”
