Coast Guard law enforcement officers will enforce a temporary security zone in waters off Kailua Bay during the annual holiday vacation of President Barack Obama and the first family.

The security zone will be in effect from 6 a.m. Thursday to 10 p.m. Jan. 5, unless canceled earlier by the Coast Guard.

Coast Guard officials say they're 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 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 the canal way to 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 marker will be placed in the canal for visual references of the zone.
