Confidential Informants are necessary investigative tools used by law enforcement but can be a ticking time bomb for inexperienced, overzealous, lazy or untrained officers. The truth is, law enforcement officers who maintain efficient control of their informants, set stringent guidelines, and utilize proven ‘handler rules, seldom have any problems controlling their informants. This training course will instruct new and experienced officers in the efficient, ethical, safe and legal protocols for developing, managing, and deploying confidential informants.

Officers will be taught to identify and avoid potential ‘problem’ informants and integrity issues. Developing and utilizing a variety of informants, such as informants working off a new arrest, a sentence reduction, jail and prison inmates, probationers, parolees, paid informants, other officer’s informants, and other categories will be covered in this class. Briefing, training, debriefing and interviewing informants will be instructed. The registration process, cooperation letters, informant contracts, payment paperwork, informant testimony, corroboration, and other topics will be discussed. Officer safety, informant safety and informant integrity will be emphasized in this dynamic training class which includes practical scenarios designed to alert student officers to the pitfalls present during dealings with informants.
