Sentinel Foundation, by design, conducts our counter trafficking operations in the shadows and the background. You will not see us highlight the details of our impact online or in the media. Everything our team does is in support of someone else and we do not seek the recognition for that work. This approach allows us the trust and ability to work on some of the world’s most challenging problems.
We believe that through accomplishing our mission fear will be instilled in those who wish to harm others. Research shows the chance of being caught is vastly more effective as a deterrent to criminal activity than even draconian punishment. There is evidence that the perceived probability of arrest must exceed thirty percent before behavior changes. After that, the deterrent effect will continue to increase until the perceived probability reaches about seventy percent.
