WASHINGTON—The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) today announced the expansion of the Domestic Nuclear Detection Office’s (DNDO) Securing the Cities program to the National Capital Region, further building upon the Department’s ongoing efforts to raise the nation’s capabilities to detect and protect against radiological and nuclear threats. The Securing the Cities program seeks to lessen the threat posed by dangerous radiological or nuclear materials against major metropolitan areas in the United States by establishing sustainable capability among state, local, and tribal agencies to detect and report dangerous radiological and nuclear materials within their jurisdictions.
