At the beginning of January 2010, the offices of the DTRA were subject to an attack by a mortal organization called the NMS Group (No More Secrets). It is believed they are run by one of the various supernatural organizations and they are used as general trouble makers for government organizations like the DTRA. Because of this, the DTRA has used the cover of the census in order to set up their new base of operation on the 16th floor of the Chicago Temple Building. See the Home page for the article in the Chicago Lance (local paper).
