Coast Guard law enforcement officers will enforce a temporary security zone in the waters of Kailua Bay, Oahu. To ensure the safety of the President Obama, the temporary security zone will be in effect from 6 a.m. Friday to 10 p.m. Jan. 5, 2014, unless canceled earlier by the Captain of the Port Honolulu, Capt. Shannon Gilreath.

The Coast Guard is coordinating with the Honolulu Police Department, Marine Corps Base Hawaii and other federal, state, and county law enforcement agencies on patrols of the area under the direction of the U.S. Secret Service.

The maritime security zone includes a portion of Kailua Bay, beginning at Kapoho Point and extending westward to the shoreline near Kailuana Loop. The zone also includes the adjacent canal beginning near Kapoho Point to a point extending approximately 150 yards south of the North Kalaheo Avenue Road Bridge.

A marker will be placed on Kailua Beach, a yellow buoy will be placed on the water and an orange boom will be placed in the canal for visual references of the zone.

Under the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (33 CFR 165.33), the temporary law prohibits any unauthorized person or vessel from entering or remaining in this security zone.  Any person entering the zone without the permission of the Coast Guard Captain of the Port is subject to a penalty of not more than $40,000 for each violation or a criminal penalty resulting in imprisonment of not more than 10 years.
