Shared Awareness, Seamless Operations, Synchronized Priorities

Border security between the United States and Canada around the Great Lakes basin is complicated. Approximately three-hundred thousand people and $1.5 billion in trade move through the regional border a year, so the border is critical to the economy while being challenging for national security efforts. Canada’s Marine Security Operations Center (MSOC) works to generate and disseminate vital maritime domain awareness information, and the two countries share information to maintain national security. Integrated border enforcement teams (IBETs), comprised of both American and Canadian law enforcement agents, work to synchronize combined operations. Partnership and collaboration help to strengthen the shared border.
