The Honolulu Police Department says it spent about $341,000 in overtime costs to help protect President Barack Obama and his family during their annual winter vacation.

The department said Thursday it's the highest amount during an Obama Hawaii vacation since he was elected president in 2008.

Obama has spent every Christmas season vacationing in his birth state.

Honolulu police racked up $107,000 in overtime during the 2008 vacation. Overtime costs totaled more than $293,000 for the first family's 2013 vacation and nearly $278,000 the following year.

On vacation, presidents generally pay for their own lodging, food and incidentals.

The federal government pays for transportation, security and the expenses of support staff.
