Loss Prevention Review Team

Pursuant to RCW 43.19.782, all state agencies are to appoint a Loss Prevention Review Team when the death of a person, serious injury to a person, or other substantial loss is alleged or suspected to be caused at least in part by the actions of a state agency except when the death, injury or substantial loss is already being investigated by another federal or state agency. When an incident meets the above listed criteria, agencies will report them to DES.

The Department of Enterprise Services may also direct a state agency to conduct a loss prevention review and, if requested, may provide guidance to a state agency conducting a loss prevention review. Loss Prevention Review Team program requirements, including reporting requirements, are provided in RCW 43.19.782 and RCW 43.19.783
