COAST GUARD REMAINS READY WITH MOBILE UNITS

After the events of September 11, the Coast Guard established new Maritime Safety and Security Teams (MSST) to help the service be ready to combat new and emerging threats. These domestic, highly mobile units provide specialized law enforcement and force protection capabilities to meet heightened port security requirements. The MSSTs have been specially trained to provide specialized skills and capabilities to detect, deter, and prevent terrorism. A key factor in the MSSTs' success is their ability to coordinate and operate with other Coast Guard, government, and private sector groups.
