The National Institute of Justice’s (NIJ) Sentinel Events Initiative takes a learning approach to error in the criminal justice system. This approach advocates for non-blaming, forward-looking, all-stakeholder event reviews of negative criminal justice outcomes, which might include a death in custody, routine police encounter that escalates to violence, wrongful conviction, or “near miss” in which a negative event is narrowly avoided.

Drawing on years of research, stakeholder input, and beta projects, NIJ launched a National Demonstration Project in 2018 to implement sentinel event reviews across the country. This webinar will lay out the sentinel events approach and discuss successes, challenges, and lessons learned from the demonstration project.


This webinar:

  •          outlines the sentinel events approach,
  •          shares how criminal justice practitioners can implement sentinel event reviews in their jurisdictions,
  •          includes information about a National Demonstration Project being implemented across the country by the National Institute of Justice and the Bureau of Justice Assistance.
