WASHINGTON, DC—The FBI is announcing its next generation information and case management system, Sentinel, which was deployed to all employees on July 1, 2012.
Sentinel moves the FBI from a paper-based case management system to a digital system of record. Sentinel uses a modern web-based application for entry, review, approval, and research of case and intelligence information. It enhances FBI’s ability to link cases with similar information through expanded search capabilities. It also streamlines administrative processes through “electronic workflow,” making new case information and intelligence available more quickly to agents and analysts. Director Robert S. Mueller, III said, “The deployment of Sentinel is an important step forward for FBI’s information technology.”
The FBI will continue developing Sentinel’s capabilities according to employee feedback and organizational requirements.
