Casey Hehr is the Port of Long Beach’s new head of the Security Division.

Hehr, who has been with the port since November 2016, previously served as the assistant director of security before becoming acting director in March following the retirement of the previous director.

Before coming to the port, Hehr served with the US Coast Guard for more than two decades, retiring as the Chief of Operations and Response for the Los Angeles-Long Beach Sector.

He has a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the US Coast Guard Academy, and a master’s degree in business administration from the Boston College Carroll School of Management.
