National Threat Evaluation and Reporting Program Office
As the threat landscape continues to evolve, the National Threat Evaluation and Reporting (NTER) Program Office empowers our homeland security partners to adapt to new threats and prevent terrorism and targeted violence .
NTER equips homeland security partners with tools and resources to identify, report, and mitigate threats of terrorism and targeted violence to keep the Homeland safe primarily through two lines of effort: the Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting Initiative and Behavioral Threat Assessment Integration.
 NTER defines targeted violence as any premeditated act of violence directed at a specific individual, group, or location, regardless of motivation, that violates the criminal laws of the United States or of any State or subdivision of the United States.
This definition only applies in the context of NTER’s training programs and resources.
