Patrol vessels are equipped with the latest surveillance equipment, including thermal imaging technology for long-range visibility, by day and night, in virtually all weather conditions. Continuous marine surveillance provides the port community with early incident detection and activity tracking.

A vehicle access control systems (VACS) ensure that only authorized vehicles and individuals can access port property. The VACS system also integrates with the Port’s mandatory Truck Licensing System (TLS) that controls container truck access to Port Metro Vancouver.
