WASHINGTON – Today, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke announced the issuance of an updated National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin pertaining to the terrorism threat to the U.S. homeland.
“After careful consideration of the current terror threat environment—and with input from intelligence and law enforcement partners, I have made the decision to update and extend the NTAS Bulletin for six months,” said Acting Secretary Duke. “Our enemies remain focused on attacking the United States, and they are constantly adapting. DHS and its partners are stepping up efforts to keep terrorists out of America and to prevent terrorist recruitment and radicalization here at home, and we urge the public to remain vigilant and report suspicious activity.”
This marks the fifth iteration of the Bulletin on the terror threat to the U.S. homeland. The Bulletin has been reissued three times previously since its initial release in December 2015.
