National Threat Evaluation and Reporting Office

As the threat landscape continues to evolve, the National Threat Evaluation and Reporting (NTER) Office​ empowers our homeland security partners to adapt to new threats and prevent terrorism and targeted violence [1].

[1] The definition of targeted violence, according to the US Department of Homeland Security, Office of Intelligence and Analysis: An unlawful act of violence dangerous to human life or potentially destructive of critical infrastructure or key resources, in which actors or groups intentionally target a discernible population of individuals or venue in a manner that poses a threat to homeland security, based on: an apparent terrorist motive indicated by the population or venue targeted, or by the particular means of violence employed; the significance of actual or potential impacts to the Nation’s economic security, public health, or public safety, or to the minimal operations of the economy and government; or the severity and magnitude of the violence or harm and impact of either upon the capabilities of state and local governments to effectively respond without federal assistance.
