Tampa Bay gets security grant

One of Florida’s largest seaports, Port Tampa Bay, has been awarded a US$ 1.6 million grant for port security funding by the US Federal Emergency Management Agency as part of the US$ 100 million Port Security Grant Program. The port authority plans to invest this in safety and security-related projects such as cyber security assessment and monitoring and detection as well as a waterborne barrier system that can be deployed in critical areas.

Port Tampa Bay has acquired significant funding for its security enhancements and infrastructure in recent years, owing partly to the spread-out nature of its facilities, which require remote monitoring and controlled access.
