The Sentinel Events Initiative: Becoming a Demonstration Site

The Sentinel Events Initiative (SEI) aims to empower jurisdictions by learning from negative outcomes in the criminal justice system and preventing their reoccurrence. At the time of this April 17, 2019, webinar, BJA was seeking sites for the SEI National Demonstration Collaboration, in which jurisdictions across the country will receive technical assistance to conduct sentinel event reviews of outcomes such as wrongful releases, in-custody deaths, or fatal overdoses of justice-involved individuals. This webinar provided an overview of the sentinel events approach and an opportunity for interested applicants to ask questions about SEI.
