The use of confidential sources and informants is a necessary evil in law enforcement. A good informant managed properly can be the difference in solving a variety of crimes, up to and including homicides. But a poorly managed informant can create a disaster for the officer and the department. Far too often officers are using informants without the proper knowledge on how and when they should be used.
