With the expiration of the December 2015 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) bulletin, and in light of the tragic shooting in Orlando on the morning of June 13th, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson announced the publication of a new bulletin acknowledging that the “global threat” of terrorism has not changed and includes the deep concerns about homegrown violent extremists “who could strike with little or no notice.”

The Secretary declared an increased public vigilance and awareness continues to be of utmost importance to the nation.

The NTAS Bulletin describes the government’s counter-terrorism efforts, and although there are no specific and credible intelligence on plots to attack within the U.S., the public can help by being aware, informed and prepared.

“DHS and the FBI continue to provide guidance to state and local partners on increased security measures,” said Secretary Johnson, and advised that an increased law enforcement security presence may be observed across communities, in public places and events in the months ahead.

The current bulletin has a five-month duration and will expire just before the holiday season at which time the DHS will reassess the threats of terrorism and issue updated information.
