OIG's New Sentinel Event Review

OIG is committed to providing independent civilian police oversight that hears community demands for change and meaningfully incorporates community concerns, questions, and input into our work. In this transformational time, OIG is, in partnership with community and law enforcement, undertaking a Sentinel Event Review of the Seattle Police Department response to the 2020 mass demonstrations.

Send us your Sentinel Event Review comments

Community input is a critical part of the Sentinel Event Review Process. We want to hear from you. For example:

  • What are your biggest concerns about how the 2020 protest events unfolded?
  • Which issues, policies or police tactics do you think should be the highest priority for the Sentinel Event Review panel to examine?
  • How would you like to see major protest events handled in the future?
  • Any other Sentinel Event Review comments you want to share.
