This is a general breakdown of how security staff is assigned based on the number of passengers per vessel and/or which terminal they berth at:
300-1,000 pax / 7-9 officers at POT & OGW 1,000-2,300 pax / 11-13 officers at POT & OGW 2,300-3,300 pax / 13-15 officers at POT & OGW
Security start times are staggered to maximize the effort throughout the day. The highest need for security is when the shore excursions return at the end of the day.
