Area of Responsibility
The area of responsibility (AOR) for Station New Haven consists of almost 2/3 of Long Island
Sound, extending from Black Rock Harbor to Clinton Harbor on the Connecticut shoreline
and from Mattituck Inlet to approximately 2nm East of Mt. Sinai Harbor on the Long Island
With the help of the Auxiliary and local resources, we average 150-200 search and rescue
(SAR) cases and conduct approximately 200-300 law enforcement boardings annually. In
addition, we routinely conduct joint operations with the U.S. Customs Service,
Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), and local municipalities.
The majority of our work takes place in the spring, summer, and fall months with most of
the local boating traffic out of the water for the winter.
