Port Security

Safety and security are top priorities at the Port of Long Beach. Since September 11, 2001, the Port and the other government agencies responsible for security have greatly expanded their efforts to protect the Port complex and surrounding communities. The Port takes a leadership role in the development of strategies to mitigate security risks in the port complex, working closely with multiple partners, both public and private, to plan and coordinate security measures.
