October 31, 2017 (Hagåtña) – Acting Governor Ray Tenorio, joined by his wife, Madoka, were present at the Department of Corrections graduation ceremony yesterday morning. The mission of DOC is “to ensure public safety for the people of Guam by effectively managing offenders to reduce recidivism and enhance reintegration while maintaining close collaboration with partner agencies and the community.”
The Basic Corrections Officer Training (BCOT) Cycle 17-01 is the first graduating cycle this fiscal year.
“We continue to support the hiring of additional personnel for the Department of Corrections,” Acting Governor Ray Tenorio stated. “This will allow the department to ensure safety in our correctional facility with the necessary personnel.”
DOC anticipates that the hiring of new officers will augment the shortage of staff and significantly impact the decrease in overtime for the department.
“We congratulate the new officers and we welcome them to a proud and honorable profession. Serving and protecting the people of Guam, correctional officers are unsung heroes who deserve the recognition for the tireless work they perform to ensure the safety of our community from dangerous criminals,” DOC Director Tony Lamorena said.
The seven graduates are: Anthony J. Fejeran, Zachary L. Fernandez, Ichiro B. Kikuo, Nory Ann R. Larimer, Craig M. Reyes, Christopher J. Tooley, and Jean A. White.
