The 5th Annual Maritime Security West builds on the success of last year’s first joint conference with the Marine Law Enforcement (MLE) Conference in Everett, WA. As the nineteenth maritime security conference hosted by Homeland Security Outlook since 2011, Maritime Security West provides all participants an outstanding opportunity to learn and collaborate across different perspectives, jurisdictions, and borders. 

THE MARINE LAW ENFORCEMENT CONFERENCE AND MARITIME SECURITY WEST ARE BACK TOGETHER AGAIN!

The combination of Maritime Security West and the 29th Annual Marine Law Enforcement (MLE) Conference makes the program the largest and most comprehensive maritime security and law enforcement event in the U.S. With one exhibit hall for both conferences and workshops, exhibitors will have access to all participants of the program during exhibit hall times, meals and networking events.  With more than 300 participants expected, this event will be the largest gathering of maritime security professionals and law enforcement officers in the U.S.

NEW FOR 2017

All workshops and conference sessions will be ran in three segments:  General Sessions, ports, commerce and facility security and marine law enforcement.  These segments will be conducted in smaller workshop settings allowing for better interaction between facilitator and attendees.  It also allows attendees to have more breaks to interact with other attendees and exhibitors.  Only 4-5 general sessions will be conducted in the main session hall (in exhibit hall) on topics that will be relevant to all participants as a whole.  FYI, we conducted this model at the 2017 East program in Galveston and it was extremely successful and beneficial for attendees, presenters and exhibitors.

WA State Parks Boating Commission will be conducting EVOC (Enhanced Vessel Operations Courses) for all marine law enforcement officers including those attending from outside WA State.  These courses will take place nearby at Foss Waterway Seaport and will occur in 3 days increments.
