WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) and Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet (PACFLT) will conduct Exercise Citadel Pacific 2012 (CP-12) on naval installations throughout the U.S. Pacific Command area of responsibility including regions Hawaii, Joint Region Marianas (Guam), Japan, and Singapore.

This annual exercise is designed to enhance the training and readiness of Navy security forces to respond to threats to installations and units. CP-12 is not in response to any specific threat, but is a regularly scheduled exercise.

There is the possibility of increased patrols on and around Navy installations as a result of this planned 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.
