The Somaliland Coast Guard (Somali: Ciidanka ilaalada Xeebaha Somaliland, Arabic: خفر سواحل صوماليلاندي) is the maritime law enforcement, search and rescue and coastal defence branch of Somaliland Armed Forces, founded on 2 October 1995.
The Somaliland Coast Guard is part of the Somaliland Armed Forces. Its mission includes the protection of Somaliland territory and sovereignty. The Guard has been relatively effective at combatting piracy in the region, thanks to the support of the local population. The legal powers and purpose of the SLGC were formally outlined in the Somaliland Coast Guard Law, which was promulgated in January, 2019. The Coast Guard has received limited support from international sources, such as the European Union.
