The Department of Homeland Security’s 2020 Homeland Threat Assessment is a first-of-its-kind report synthesizing threat assessments across DHS including intelligence and operational components.
On September 1 and 2, DHS Policy’s Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention program (TVTP) hosted the 5th Digital Forum on Terrorism Prevention for approximately 60 mostly Atlanta-based civil society leaders.
In September 2019, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued its Strategic Framework for Countering Terrorism and Targeted Violence (CTTV Framework) and now offers this corresponding Public Action Plan demonstrating the Department’s efforts to combat emerging threats and improve information sharing. The Public Action Plan provides a high-level outline of the goals set by DHS, including efforts to secure cyberspace, deter lone wolf attacks, and secure soft targets such as churches and schools, along with the ability to dynamically modify DHS resources as new threats emerge.
Portland’s rioters have not stopped and are instead focusing their attacks on local law enforcement officers and buildings elsewhere in the city.
Portland’s months-long riot problem continues elsewhere in the city.
Tuesday evening marked a third consecutive night with no attacks directed at federal officers or property – a stark contrast from the violent nightly siege of the previous weeks.
While violent criminal activity persists elsewhere in Portland, Monday night marked the second straight night during which rioters did not attack federal property or officers.
Sunday night marked the first night in over 60 days during which rioters did not attack federal property in Portland.
While the violence is receding, DHS will remain faithful to its mission to protect federal property and personnel.
