Gov't to Fund Port of Charleston Project

October 4, 2006

According to The State, the Port of Charleston will get $11.5m for the next 12 months for a port security project. The U.S. Department of Justice is providing the money to operate Project Seahawk. Earlier this year, Congress passed legislation with a provision by U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham and others to use the Charleston operation as a model for others in U.S. port cities. These Seahawk Centers would be run by the Coast Guard and include the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Defense, Department of Justice, and other federal agencies. State and local law enforcement, first responders, port authority or maritime exchange representatives also would be included in the joint operations. Source: The State
