VANCOUVER - Marine security units will patrol waterways associated with the 2010 Olympic Games around the clock and will designate certain areas as off-limits to the boating public.
Among the security zones will be Vancouver's False Creek, which houses the Olympic athletes' village.
The Integrated Security Unit's Sgt. Cameron Miller says False Creek will be secured by a fence under the Cambie street bridge that will control vessel traffic.
Miller says the initial security plan called for blocking all marine traffic from entering the eastern section of False Creek, though the ISU will now allow vessels that moor in the area to enter and exit if they radio for a security escort.
Burrard Inlet, the Fraser River and Howe Sound will also feature exclusion zones and controlled access zones.
Exclusion zones consist of the water closest to main venues, while controlled access zones stretch further out and can be travelled through upon permission from marine security units.
