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.
