Department of Homeland Security issues National Terrorism Advisory System update

The US Department of Homeland Security has published a new National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin which describes the government’s current terrorism risk assessment.

The Bulletin states that DHS is ‘particularly concerned about homegrown violent extremists who could strike with little or no notice’ and points out that ‘the tragic events of Orlando several days ago reinforce this’.

Public events and places could be particular targets for homegrown attacks says the Bulletin, explaining that ‘the public may observe an increased law enforcement and security presence across communities, in public places and at events in the months ahead. This may include additional restrictions and searches on bags, more K-9 teams, and the use of screening technologies.’
