ACG Donates to the Hellenic Coast Guard

In the greater context of the CSR and community engagement initiative of The American College of Greece, a donation in the form of computer equipment was made to the Hellenic Coast Guard (HCG – Λιμενικό Σώμα-Ελληνική Ακτοφυλακή), in support of the HCG’s critical operations that focus on combating human and drug smuggling.

The HCG was established in 1919 and has since developed into one of the largest such forces in the wider region. It numbers 8,000 personnel across Greece, with dozens of island stations and bases, and several diplomatic representatives in Greek embassies and consulates abroad. It has approximately 200 vessels and over 10 helicopters and light aircraft at its disposal.
