Abstract:

To determine the nature of the Coast Guards shift from traditional core missions to its new security functions for homeland security, we interviewed Coast Guard officials and reviewed relevant documents regarding the reallocation of Coast Guard resources. Coast Guard interviews involved personnel from Headquarters, Atlantic Area Command, Pacific Area Command, District 1, District 5, District 11, District 13, and a variety of group and small boat station personnel under these commands. These officials provided examples of post-September 11th activities and the operational status of assets and personnel. We gathered information on asset planning and operations from the Coast Guards Abstract of Operations and the Commandants fiscal Year 2002 Law Enforcement Planning Guidance.
