DISCUSSION
The Securing the Cities Sustainment Program (STC Program) is an initiative of the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that is designed to enhance the nation’s ability to detect and prevent a radiological or nuclear attack in cities facing high risk. Under the STC Program, the DHS partners with the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Office to develop a regional team of law enforcement and first responders to identify, prevent, and respond to potential nuclear and radiological threats.

City Council approval is requested to sign the Subrecipient Agreement for participation in the STC Program, and for reimbursement of certain personnel costs as approved by the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Office.
