Our Galveston Wharves Police and Security Department does a remarkable job of handling a complex operation. Headed by Security Director Kenneth Campbell, our staff of 26 is responsible for public safety and security for a busy, 840-acre port facility with 840 cargo vessel calls, 268 cruise ship calls, thousands of workers and almost 2 million cruise passenger movements in 2018.

Campbell, who has more than 25 years of law enforcement experience, along with Chief Kenneth Brown, who has more than 22 years of law enforcement experience, oversees a 24/7 operation with three shifts of law enforcement officers and dispatchers, a detective and a facilities security officer. They’re responsible for enforcing state and federal laws and ensuring port security.

Rodger Rees is port director and chief executive officer for the Galveston Wharves.
