Philadelphia Signs Lease To House Homeland Security Fusion Center At South Philadelphia's Quartermaster reports that the City of Philadelphia signed a lease that would allow the city to house their planned counterterrorism and anti-crime "fusion center" at the old defense depot in South Philadelphia, known locally as the "Quartermaster."

The site, which was for many years the home of the Defense Supply Center Philadelphia (DSCP) has been largely vacant since the Defense Department procurement command moved to the Navy base in Northeast Philadelphia in 1999.

You can read about the planned fusion center and watch a video with Fox news reporter Dave Shratwieser via the below link:

I wrote about Philadelphia's plan to create a fusion center, to be called the Delaware Valley Intelligence Center, at the Quartermaster for Counterterrorism magazine a while back.
