Press Release - U.S. DHS Updates National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin
Since December of 2015, DHS has added a new form of advisory, the NTAS Bulletin, which provides information to the public. It describes broader, more general trends and current developments regarding threats of terrorism. The NTAS features an advisory system that consists of three types: Bulletin, Elevated Alert and Imminent Alert, with the Bulletin being the lowest form of advisory. For more information on the levels of advisory, visit .
“There are no particular differences between the last NTAS Bulletin and the currently issued one. It extends the current bulletin until September 14, 2018 and maintains broader issues regarding homegrown terrorism and foreign terrorist organizations’ use of the internet and other means to recruit, inspire, enable, or direct individuals already in the homeland to commit terrorist acts,” stated Homeland Security Advisor, George Charfauros. “It is not in connection to any specific, credible threat to the United States, at this time.”
The community are advised to report any suspicious activity, social media posts or messages relating to current events, to local law enforcement and the MRFC online at https://mlrin.org/, following the Department of Homeland Security’s campaign, “If You See Something, Say Something” or call 671-475-0400 / email email@example.com.
