The U.S. Coast Guard continues to work with local, state, and federal agencies to assess and improve port security throughout the region. Based on information received across the U.S. Government, there is a credible threat to maritime interests from swimmers and divers. The Captain of the Port Puget Sound
has notified individual maritime industry and port authority stakeholders to heighten awareness and discuss appropriate security measures. This information does not change the Homeland Security Advisory System threat level. The threat level remains “yellow” (elevated).
The Captain of the Port Puget Sound
has established a communication network with local port authorities and marine industry leaders to report anomalous behaviors, address security concerns, and respond to requests for assistance. U.S. Coast Guard cutters
continue to patrol Puget Sound waters. Please immediately report any suspicious or unusual activity to U.S Coast Guard Marine Safety Office Puget Sound at (206) 217-6230 or 1 (800) 688-6664.
