Terrorist Release Announcements to Counter Extremist Recidivism Act or the TRACER Act
This bill directs the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to share with state, local, and regional fusion centers through the DHS State, Local, and Regional Fusion Center Initiative, for homeland security purposes, release information from a federal correctional facility, including the name, charging date, and expected place and date of release, of individuals convicted of a federal crime of terrorism.
A fusion center serves as a focal point within the state and local environment for the receipt, analysis, gathering, and sharing of threat-related information between the federal government and state, local, tribal, territorial, and private sector partners.
DHS shall coordinate with appropriate federal officials to provide state, local, and regional fusion centers with periodic assessments regarding the overall threat from known or suspected terrorists currently incarcerated in a federal correctional facility.
