Sector Puget Sound Vessel Traffic Service

Commanding Officer:
Captain of the Port - Joe Raymond

On May 10, 2005 our unit combined with others, establishing U. S. Coast Guard Sector Seattle. This is a significant strategic achievement that integrates command functions of Coast Guard Group Seattle,  Marine Safety Office Puget Sound and VTS Puget Sound under one operational commander to more effectively manage the sweeping changes to the Coast Guard’s operational environment that resulted from the attacks of September 11, 2001.
In August 2010, the unit was renamed to Sector Puget Sound.
