North Carolina State Ports Authority Police Department Morehead City
Message from the Chief
The Morehead City State Port Police & Security Department are proud to provide the
maritime commerce community with security and law enforcement services that are
focused on stopping or limiting the effects of terrorism. Our department provides
a layered security structure that involves, among other things, intelligent
video analytics, physical security barrier systems, sophisticated and
interoperable radio communications systems, and a TWIC- based access control system.
Our sworn law enforcement, and unsworn security officers and Surveillance
analyst/dispatchers provide community-oriented police and security services,
while affording the Port area a formidable Homeland Security support structure
both on land and on water. We enjoy an excellent working relationship with our local,
state, and federal partners in law enforcement.
