The U.S. Coast Guard presented the Ports of New York, New Jersey, and Albany with the Area Maritime Security Committee of the Year Award at an Oct. 11 meeting in Brooklyn, N.Y.

The Coast Guard's announcement said Area Maritime Security Committees bring federal, state, local, and tribal government and industry partners together to collaborate on maritime security; they create partnerships and networks, share information, conduct training, assess vulnerabilities, and mitigate risks in support of the Area Maritime Security Plan.
