GHRA & Cycles Plus Assist in Repairs & Maintenance of GPD Vehicles

(Monday, August 6, 2012 – Tumon, Guam) The Guam Visitors Bureau donated two vehicles to the Guam Police Department to assist them in stepping up efforts in keeping visitors and local patrons to the Tourist District of Tumon Bay safe.

“Safety is one of the top priorities of this administration, and it is important that we work with all our stakeholders to ensure that our visitors and local community are safe,” Lieutenant Governor Ray Tenorio said. “On behalf of Governor Calvo, First Lady Christine, myself and Attorney Shimizu, we thank GVB, the Guam Hotel & Restaurant Association and Cycles Plus for their continued partnership.”

“Safety is very important to us and today’s donation of the vehicles is a testament of our support for the good work GPD does everyday,” GVB General Manager Joann G. Camacho said. “We hope that they will utilize these vehicles to their fullest potential and continue to keep our visitors and our community safe.”

GVB handed the keys over to one new Kawasaki KRF750 Teryx-4wd and one Kawasaki KL650ECF Motorcycle during a press conference held at their office in Tumon. With a shortage in manpower, these utility vehicles will be used to expand current coverage of GPD’s Beach Patrol as well as patrol along Pale San Vitores Road.

At the same event, Manager of Cycles Plus, Mr. Dennis Quinones said they will service these vehicles free of charge for one year. “We are one community and we are happy to have partnered with GVB and GHRA to donate these vehicles as well as perform repairs on other vehicles in their fleet,” Quinones added.

The Guam Hotel & Restaurant Association was also present and spoke about the repairs they were able to provide to four vehicles in GPD’s fleet.

“GHRA is proud to continue its long legacy of donating safety and security equipment to GPD and other agencies,” President of GHRA, Mary Torre said. “GHRA’s partnership with the Government of Guam is not only to provide the necessary tools but to also act as its private sector partner to be the eyes and ears for the tourism industry.”

GHRA will also be holding its annual Governor’s Cup November 17-18, 2012. Proceeds of the tournament assist in the repairs to equipment for GPD and other agencies tasked with the safety of visitors and residents.
