Using confidential informants has always been a challenge. While there are times when using a CI is useful and can gain law enforcement agencies valuable information they might get in no other way – there are still significant considerations for their use.

  • Focus on the practical implications for the use of CIs
  • Help attendees learn from previous cases – what to avoid, and the best practices for using CIs.
