Guam's Department of Youth Affairs (DYA) is grossed out by the dilapidated office buildings and outdated locking systems.
Melanie Brennan, the director, said the ceiling in one of the buildings had partially caved. And it was covered in plastic to prevent the termites from dropping onto the desk of employees. Brennan said the building had been inspected by the Department of Public Works but it did nothing. "The facilities antiquated locking mechanisms for cells within the compound force officers to use padlocks to secure the buildings," she said.
The Department of Youth Affairs is awaiting funds to be approved. The funds will most definitely help maintain the buildings.
