OSMS and YOU: Maritime Law Enforcement, PWCS

For over 200 years, the Coast Guard has filled the roll as our Nation’s first responder to threats in the maritime environment – both domestic and foreign. Aside from conducting general law enforcement, maritime law enforcement personnel prevent, deter, and respond to illicit activities such as terrorism, illegal entry, smuggling, piracy, as well as enforce federal laws protecting the United States’ living marine resources.
