Coast Guard increases presence in ports and waterways

BOSTON – Coast Guard units throughout the Northeast have increased their presence to ensure safety and security of the ports and waterways, after Monday’s bombings at the Boston Marathon.

As a result of the increased patrols, the Coast Guard is able to keep the Ports of Boston, New York and New Jersey open to commercial shipping, passenger ferry transportation and recreational boating.

Boston station crews, cutters, aircraft and Maritime Safety and Security Teams from Boston and New York, along with local stations and patrol boats are operating throughout the port with a heightened awareness alongside partners and fellow first responders.
