States and National Guard (States/Nat'l Guard)

Headquartered in Washington, D.C.


Many states and larger cities have created fusion centers to share information and intelligence within their jurisdictions as well as with the federal government. As of July 2009, there were 72 fusion centers around the country. The Homeland Security Data Network (HSDN), which allows the federal government to move information and intelligence to the states at the Secret level, is deployed at 27 fusion centers. Increasingly some of the larger state and local fusion centers have been working at the Top Secret level as well, contracting for services just as the federal government does.
