Homeland Security

The Bar Pilots work hand in hand with the United States Coast Guard regarding homeland security. Bar Pilots are the first Americans onboard foreign ships entering our waterways and we have been trained to look for and report suspicious behavior.

Our Pilot stations coordinate with USCG boarding teams to help locate and coordinate offshore boarding. Once the vessel has been cleared to enter, the USCG boarding team notifies the Pilot station and a Pilot is dispatched immediately to bring the vessel into port without any costly delays.
