Undercover Operations

For law enforcement purposes, undercover is an investigative technique in which a

sworn law enforcement officer operates in a covert mode for the purpose of developing

intelligence about illegal activities. The undercover officer may either occupy a position

from which he can provide direct information about criminal activity or occupy a corol-

lary position from which he is able to provide information that, when combined with

intelligence gathered through other investigative techniques, can result in successful

resolution of a case.
