Guam – Senator Brant McCreadie is working on legislation to help curb squatting and loitering



 The Senator says that his office has received complaints about an increase in squatters and loiterers in the heart of the tourism district in Tumon. The Senator held a roundtable meeting yesterday with members of the Guam Police Department and the Tamuning Mayor to discuss ways to prevent this increasing trend. According to the Tamuning Mayor and GPD officers part of the problem surrounds the current laws that prevent loitering and camping in beach areas for extended periods of time. “This is a starting point and then we can tighten up the loitering we can make that really strict and then we can go to squatting so I think it’s a three pronged approach I don’t think it’s one silver bullet that can solve all our problems,” said McCreadie. The Senator says he wants to start with a piece of legislation that strengthens Guam’s current anti-loitering laws.
