The Enquirer highlighted on Wednesday, yet another example of confidential informants acting illegally and the potential resulting dangers. Cincinatti Police have had to arrest one of their own informants after it was discovered that he was allegedly possessing and trafficking drugs. From the limited information available it seems that, in this instance, Cincinatti Police may have averted serious consequences. However, law enforcement agencies have to be aware of the risks associated with confidential informants and the need to manage them effectively.
