The Cruise Vessel Security and Safety Act of 2010

The Cruise Vessel Security and Safety Act (CVSSA) requires cruise companies to be transparent in recording and reporting crimes, creates measures to prevent and respond to assault committed on a vessel, and requires cruise ships to implement policies and procedures. Prior to the introduction of CVSSA in 2010, foreign flagged vessels operating in the United States were not required to report crimes to the federal government, and federal crime scene investigators had limited jurisdiction on vessels, making it difficult to collect data and secure crime scenes involving U.S. citizens. CVSSA has increased and expanded the scope for the safety and security of cruise ships.
