ABOUT THE COAST GUARD

The Coast Guard is an armed maritime service with the military, law enforcement, marine environmental protection, and search and rescue (SAR missions). In an average day, the Coast Guard conducts 109 SAR cases, saves 10 lives, assists 192 people in distress, protects $2.8 million in property, conducts 396 small boat patrols, 164 aircraft flights, boards 144 vessels and seizes 169 pounds of marijuana and 306 pounds of cocaine worth $9.6 million, interdict 14 illegal immigrants, process 238 merchant mariner licenses and documents, boards 100 large vessels for port safety checks, responds to 20 oil or hazardous chemical spills totaling 2,800 gallons, services 135 buoys and other Aids to Navigation, safely conducts 2, 509 vessels in and out of major ports and its icebreakers assist 197,00 tons of shipping. Yet, interestingly enough, the Coast Guard maintains the same personnel levels as it did in 1967 and is smaller than the New York City Police Department.

Formed as the Revenue Cutter Service in 1790 by Alexander Hamilton to collect taxes and deter piracy, the Coast Guard is the oldest armed, uniformed service in continual operation since 1790. (The Army, Navy and Marines were disbanded after the War of Independence and only later formed again; the Air Force was formed in 1947). In 1915, the Federal Lighthouse and Lifesaving services were merged with Revenue Cutter Service and renamed the Coast Guard. The Coast Guard was under the administration of the Department of the Treasury (except during times of War. when it was transferred to the Department of Navy) until the 1960s, when it was transferred to the authority of the Department of Transportation. In March, 2003, the Coast Guard was transferred to the Department of Homeland Security
