How Justice Agencies Can Implement and Benefit from Sentinel Event Reviews

The National Institute of Justice’s (NIJ) Sentinel Events Initiative takes a learning approach to error in the criminal justice system.

Webinar - Sustainable Crime Gun Intelligence Strategies Require Policy-driven Tactics

Whether implementing a regional or agencywide preventive crime gun strategy, the establishment of formal policies is a critical factor that must be addressed.
