<br />Crews assembled buoys Wednesday to mark the new Ahu o Laka safety zone, a no-alcohol zone around the Kaneohe Bay sandbar. Department of Land and Natural Resources Director William Aila, far left, helped a DLNR crew throw over a tire to anchor a buoy.<br />

State conservation enforcement officers patrolling the newly created safety zone at Ahu o Laka sandbar in Kaneohe Bay today issued one citation for alcohol possession and gave eight warnings about safety equipment, the state Department of Land and Natural Resources said.

In all, the first weekend under the new ban on alcohol and disorderly conduct at the sandbar passed with relatively few enforcement actions.

Through the three-day weekend, officers issued three citations for alcohol, two citations for violating boating safety equipment requirements, one parking citation and one traffic citation, DLNR said.

Officials estimated that about 60 boats visited the safety zone today, about 10 more than on Sunday.

The ban is in effect for the next four months during three-day holiday weekends.
