The September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks created many new challenges for the Coast Guard in the port of New York. As a result, New York has become the role model for other metropolitan ports in the Coast Guard's development and execution of its homeland security missions. This summer, New York Coast Guard homeland security teams will acquire new boats outfitted with advanced technology, undergo antiterrorism training and assist in testing armed aircraft to find new ways of defending the U.S. coasts and waterways. Operating as a Coast Guard Atlantic Area command, the team will operate primarily in and around ports of New York and New Jersey, but can be deployed to other areas as part of its antiterrorist force protection mission.
