Exercise Citadel Pacific 2014 will be conducted on Navy Installations throughout the U.S. Pacific Command area of responsibility, including Navy Region Japan, Joint Region Marianas and Navy Region Hawaii from Aug. 25-29.

This annual exercise is designed to enhance the training, readiness and capability of Navy Security Forces to respond to threats to Navy installations and units. Exercise Citadel Pacific 2014 is not in response to any specific threat, but is a regularly scheduled exercise.

Measures have been taken to minimize disruptions to normal base and station operations, but there may be times when the exercise causes increased traffic around bases or delays in base access. Area residents may also see increased security activity associated with the exercise.

During the exercise, personnel and visitors traveling to and from Navy installations in these regions may adjust their schedules to accommodate any possible delays.
