Captain of the Port - Western Alaska

Sector Anchorage is the Coast Guard's largest sector in terms of geographic area, exercising authority in a jurisdiction extending through-out Western Alaska, The North Slope, and the Aleutian Islands through Prince William Sound.  Sector Anchorage has several subordinate units, which include Marine Safety Unit Valdez, several Marine Safety Detachments, several Cutters and an Aids To Navigation Team. Sector Anchorage’s missions include, but are not limited to: search and rescue, pollution prevention & response, waterways management, port security, vessel inspections, and investigations. In 2014, Sector Anchorage was relocated from downtown Anchorage to a state-of-the-art facility attached to the Alaska National Guard Armory on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.
