I’m really excited to finally be able to share something we have been working on for a really long time. We read every available coronial file on an Indigenous death in custody and converted them into this searchable database. #DeathsInside…
We checked each case against a number of data points, including average coronial delay, whether all relevant procedures were followed, and whether the person required additional medical care which was not given. #DeathsInside
