Reinhard Heydrich set about recruiting his personnel directly and established a network that gradually replaced the locally appointed Press and Information Service. Since spring 1932, he had traveled to recruit local leaders, who in turn built their staffs and established a network of agents. After its official creation in July 1932, the Sicherheitsdienst (SD) began to take shape. By October, Heydrich had acquired a two-story house for SD Central, his Munich headquarters. It served as both SD office and home for the Heydrich family. Located adjacent to the Nymphenburg Palace grounds in a pleasant residential neighborhood and screened by trees and bushes, it provided an ideal cover. He thus established seclusion in residential neighborhoods as the preferred pattern for SD offices at all levels.
