The coastal guard line of the maritime security task is more than 10 kilometers and covers waters of 500 meters surrounding the guard line of venue. More than 200 policemen, as well as 6 ships on duty, 1 comprehensive command vehicle, 2 communication support vehicles, and 15 4G figure transferred vehicles, were formed into three police forces which were all sent to maintain maritime security including a guard group on land, a police tactical unit named Blue Shark at sea, and a border women patrol team.
