Because of their efforts, this will be the fourth consecutive year we will have covered 100% of our region (the first Service Planning Area to have accomplished this!). Our sincere thanks to those of you who were able to join us!
Special recognition goes to the following who led each city's deployment efforts:

In other news, we are still in a state of shock about last week's senseless Las Vegas massacre, with some that were killed or wounded being from the South Bay. Still other victims include many from our local law enforcement agencies that attended the concert and although they escaped without any physical wounds, the trauma to themselves, their family, colleagues and friends continue to reverberate. Our continued thoughts and prayers will be with them in the upcoming months as they seek to heal from this tragedy.

In addition, DPH is administering vaccinations at its Inglewood and Torrance locations. These are for both those experiencing homelessness and for service providers.
