Port Security and Safety

Safety and security of its bi-state facilities is a top priority of the Port Authority.  The agency is a proud partner of many federal and state agencies working hard to ensure the security of our ports of call. Many civil and military agencies, from the U.S. Coast Guard to the U.S. Department of Agriculture to the Port Authority’s own police force work closely together to protect our Port and our region.
