National Maritime Law Enforcement Academy (NMLEA)

National Maritime Law Enforcement Academy (NMLEA) https://nmlea.org The National Maritime Law Enforcement Academy provides education and training for law enforcement personnel as well as for the critical infrastructure industries located on or near the maritime environment.
(1)

Besides improved tactical operations within an agency, this education also covers coordination among applicable agencies at times of catastrophic events exercising the National Incident Management System (NIMS). The objective of the Academy is to provide law enforcement agencies the best possible maritime training this country has to offer. Our training units are mobile and we bring our training to your agencies. By coming to you, we save both your agency and the taxpayers significant money. As a non-profit organization, we are politically neutral and assess the officers, agents, and agencies in a fair and impartial manner. Many classes presented around the country teach tactics and skills oriented to equipment which officers or agents may never use or have available within their agencies. Our programs are different as they are uniquely designed to use each agency's specific assets in order to increase the officers’ awareness in the capabilities of those assets, and how best to use them to the officers’ and the agency's advantage. The key to raising the level of professionalism, proficiency, and officer safety and survival is to customize the training to utilize the actual assets and equipment used by those officers in the field. This is our method and we do it well.

#KICKPLASTIC Wollaston Lake Lodge

“We went through 30,000 water bottles in 3 months. It was mind-boggling. We got tired of finding plastic caps and plastic water bottles. Even though we patrolled it, they were everywhere. And then I started learning about the small particulates that still are in the water that really never go away. That for me was the ‘a-ha’ moment. What are we doing to this fishery, and what are we doing to the people downstream? Our water is the biggest lake in the world to flow into two different oceans. If the oceans are having problems, why wouldn’t we help do something?”

Alaska Wildlife Trooper Lemay, took this photo while on patrol in Coldfoot this past weekend. In winter, Coldfoot AWT patrols keep an eye on trapping and caribou hunting. It's common to see troopers out and about in trucks, on snowmachines, and in aircraft enforcing the hunting and fishing regulations as well as responding to highway collisions along the Dalton Highway. Besides enforcement and search and rescue, the Coldfoot trooper participates in educational outreach to villages in the interior and the North Slope. Troopers spend a considerable amount of time outdoors, and this time of year that can mean temperatures hovering around -20 degrees Fahrenheit and it can even get as cold as -50 below during winter in the interior.

We’re excited to announce the stand-up of the first Port Security Unit (PSU) Reserve Maintenance Augmentation Team (RMAT) in St. Petersburg, FL. The PSU-RMAT is a pilot program for Reserve MKs and ETs assigned to Bases to provide maintenance on PSU boats and expeditionary equipment.

This initiative will increase maintenance currency and asset availability while increasing training opportunities for MK and ET personnel outside of the PSUs to support career diversity within a single geographic area. If successful, additional PSU-RMATs will be established in the coming years as we work to restore the Selected Reserve to its authorized strength of 7,000. This effort is currently underway so stay tuned for more details and information on how the program is going! #USCGR #USCG #Reserve #RMATs

A statement from Capt. Matt Baer, Commander of Sector North Carolina, "This morning, a fire took place at a commercial residential complex in Buxton, North Carolina where several active duty Coast Guard members live.

With great sadness, I have confirmed that the family of one of our active duty members is currently unaccounted for. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers while we investigate this incident with local authorities.

The Coast Guard is a small organization. This tragic incident impacts not only this family, crew and station, but various members, families and units throughout the Coast Guard.

In addition to the individuals currently unaccounted for, three other Coast Guard members and their families were displaced by the fire. They are currently in a safe shelter location.

Members trained in critical incident stress management are currently enroute to support those impacted by this tragedy. We are also working with the Coast Guard Foundation and other organizations to further support our members and families during this difficult time."

What makes lionfish so invasive?
Since their release into Florida waters in the 1980s, lionfish have invaded most of the Atlantic coast, the Gulf of Mexico, and throughout the Caribbean. And without any natural predators, their populations have grown exponentially. They prey upon juvenile fishes and invertebrates up to half their size! They have the ability to reproduce every 4 days and can lay up to 30,000 eggs. And don’t even get us started on those 18 venomous spines! Want to know how you can help? If you ever see #lionfish on a menu at a restaurant, give it a try and spread the word! Find more ways to help: www.MyFWC.com/Lionfish

On Sunday, October 4, 2020, the Massachusetts Environmental Police Patrol Boat Thomas Paine was underway in the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary. At approximately 10:30 a.m., Officers heard a radio call to United States Coast Guard Sector Boston from a fishing vessel regarding a crew member who was possibly having a heart attack.

Crew aboard the Thomas Paine were able to respond to the vessel, which was approximately 25 nautical miles off Boston, within 15 minutes. Upon arrival, an MEP Sergeant who is a trained paramedic was transferred to the fishing vessel to conduct a medical assessment of the patient. The Sergeant determined the individual required a medical evacuation; the patient was subsequently transferred onboard the Thomas Paine for a medevac to Gloucester. While en route, U.S. Coast Guard Station Gloucester met the Thomas Paine to transfer aboard two members from Gloucester EMS. Upon arrival at the Gloucester Harbormaster dock, the patient was transferred to an awaiting ambulance for transport to the hospital.

*Update from vessel owner/operator: "Thanks so much for being there. Your response was fast and professional. My crew member is doing well. The Thomas Paine is an impressive resource for the state to have available. I couldn’t be more grateful to you guys.

Who's next?

Maybe now is a good time to look at your cybersecurity posture, and see how you can become Proactive vs. Reactive. Maybe it's also time to think about being a part of our Maritime Cybersecurity Pilot to explore how a "Zero Trust" network can be set up in minutes and tested for 30 days ... at no cost to you. Contact the NMLEA cyber team at [email protected].

Maritime industry needs to focus more on securing shore-based systems and stop prioritizing the less likely ship-based attacks.

You must train together to succeed together!

Partnership is key when responding to a potential threat. Especially when you add the dynamic environment of the maritime.

The US Coast Guard, Massachusetts State Police, Massachusetts Environmental Police, and the Boston Police partnered up to conduct joint agency, counter-terrorism training in Boston Harbor this last week.

These strong partnerships are critical and help enhance communication and transparency between federal, state, and local law enforcement officers when responding to potential or actual threats within the maritime domain.

Thank you to Boston Harbor Cruises for providing our team a vessel so we may continue this simulated yet realistic training.
