STACS is designed to educate professionals from Civil Security agencies in Europe and Eurasia on best practices for ensuring Civil Security and preventing, preparing for and managing the consequences of domestic and regional crises and disasters. The program is designed to build trans-Atlantic partnership capacity in Civil Security. As conceived by the Marshall Center, civil security encompasses civil defense, homeland security, homeland defense, public security, civil emergency planning, and crisis and consequence management in response to all threats and hazards. The UCCS Center for Homeland Security helped develop the STACS program in partnership with the Marshall Center, and completed delivery of the first program in July 2008. The program will be conducted with CHS facilitators twice each year at the George C. Marshall Center in Germany. You can visit the George C. Marshall Center's STACS page here.
