Security is a top priority at Port Everglades. Ensuring a safe and secure environment for enterprises as well as individuals has become a critical, built-in function of the Port's infrastructure.
Capital Improvements Program
Port Everglades completed a massive $48 million security infrastructure program after the terrorist attacks in 2001. The strides in security enhancements and improvements have been significant. Spanning several budget years, the results have been measurable. Key highlights of this program include:
Since 9/11, the number of Port checkpoints were increased. Law enforcement has had an even more prominent presence. Identification badge requirements and background checks are strictly enforced. All of the state-of-the-art security enhancements put in place to date are making Port Everglades stronger and safer.
