Title 32 Part 770 → Subpart D
The purpose of this subpart is to promulgate standard regulations and procedures governing entry upon U.S. Naval installations and properties in Puerto Rico.
For purposes of these regulations, U.S. Naval installations and properties in Puerto Rico include, but are not limited to, the U.S. Naval Station, Roosevelt Roads (including the Vieques Island Eastern Annexes, consisting of Camp Garcia, the Eastern Maneuver Area, and the Inner Range); the Naval Ammunition Facility, Vieques Island; and the Naval Security Group Activity, Sabana Seca.
In accordance with 32 CFR 765.4, Naval installations and properties in Puerto Rico are not open to the general public, i.e., they are “closed” military bases. Therefore admission to the general public is only by the permission of the respective Commanding Officers in accordance with their respective installation instructions.
§770.38 Entry restrictions.
Except for duly authorized military personnel and civilian employees, including contract employees, of the United States in the performance of their official duties, entry upon any U.S. Navy installation or property in Puerto Rico at anytime, by any person for any purpose whatsoever without the advance consent of the Commanding Officer of the installation or property concerned, or an authorized representative of that Commanding Officer, is prohibited.
§770.39 Entry procedures.
(a) Any person or group of persons desiring to obtain advance consent for entry upon any U.S. Naval installation or property in Puerto Rico from the Commanding Officer of the Naval installation or property, or an authorized representative of that Commanding Officer, shall present themselves at an authorized entry gate at the installation or property concerned or, in the alternative, submit a request in writing to the following respective addresses:
(1) Commanding Officer, U.S. Naval Station, Roosevelt Roads, Box 3001, Ceiba, PR 00635.
(2) Officer in Charge, Naval Ammunition Facility, Box 3027, Ceiba, PR 00635.
(3) Commanding Officer, U.S. Naval Security Group Activity, Sabana Seca, PR 00749.
(b) The above Commanding Officers are authorized to provide advance consent only for installations and properties under their command. Requests for entry authorization to any other facility or property shall be addressed to the following:
Commander, U.S. Naval Forces, Caribbean, Box 3037, Ceiba, PR 00635.
(c) Each request for entry will be considered on an individual basis and consent will be determined by applicable installation entry instructions. Factors that will be considered include the purpose of visit, the size of party, duration of visit, destination, security safeguards, safety aspects, and the military resources necessary if the request is granted.
Any person entering or remaining on U.S. Naval installations and properties in Puerto Rico, without the advance consent of those officials hereinabove enumerated, or their authorized representatives, shall be considered to be in violation of these regulations and therefore subject to the penalties prescribed by 18 U.S.C. 1382, which provides in pertinent part: “Whoever, within the jurisdiction of the United States, goes upon any military, naval * * * reservation, post, fort, arsenal, yard, station, or installation, for any purpose prohibited by law or lawful regulation * * * shall be fined not more than $500.00 or imprisoned not more than six months, or both,” or any other applicable laws or regulations.
