HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Citing recent world events, the U.S. Army has increased security levels at all of its bases and installations.
The "force protection condition" was increased Sunday to "Bravo," the second level of the four condition levels. "Alpha" is the lowest level, "Delta," the highest.
The U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii said commuters should allow extra time, especially during the morning hours, when entering Schofield Barracks, Wheeler Army Air Field, Tripler Army Medical Center, Fort Shafer and other army facilities.
The heightened security level will remain in effect until further notice, the army said.
