Can the Police Commit Crimes While Undercover?

September 13, 2019


The use of undercover or covert law enforcement
is common throughout much of the world and, for the most part, men and women tasked with
going undercover are expected to, and do, follow the law. However, beyond the occasional bad officer
doing things they aren’t supposed to, exceptions can and will be made on a case by case basis,
making undercover police some of the few people who are paradoxically legally allowed to commit
certain crimes while they try to catch other people committing crimes. And before we continue, we should probably
also just quickly state that the common internet rumor that undercover officers must admit
to being such if asked is completely false. They can happily lie to your face if they
want, which is pretty essential to the whole job of being an undercover agent. In any event, as alluded to, before undercover
police officers and covert agents in many countries of the world commit any kind of
crime, they are generally required to get prior approval from someone higher up the
chain of command. However, as with most things in life, there
are of course exceptions to this and if an individual officer feels that they have to
commit a given crime to maintain their cover, they’re tentatively free to do so at their
own discretion, but with full knowledge that they’ll almost certainly be required to
justify this decision and there’s no guarantee that their superiors will agree with them. This potentially opens up the officer to criminal
charges themselves. That said, one of the ways some undercover
operations have historically gotten around this in a very controversial way is to simply
keep everything under wraps and potentially even lie on their reports, which is where
the controversy occasionally pops up when this is discovered. For example, it was noted by the Justice Department’s
Inspector General in 2005 that the FBI regularly broke the rules and disregarded guidelines
over the course of their undercover investigations, generally with no consequences to the agents
involved. As a worse example, we have the relatively
recent case where a three year investigation ended up all being wasted time and effort
because it was revealed that the undercover officer, according to Judge Cam Ferenbach,
“deployed techniques that generated a wholly new crime for the sake of pressing criminal
charges against [Jeremy] Halgat.” The officer appears to have taken this route
after repeatedly trying to get Halgat to commit a crime, but with Halgat refusing. Judge Stephen Reinhardt would also ring in
about the ATF’s conduct in this and other similar operations around this time, stating,
“In this era of mass incarceration, in which we already lock up more of our population
than any other nation on Earth, it is especially curious that the government feels compelled
to invent fake crimes and imprison people for long periods of time for agreeing to participate
in them — people who but for the government’s scheme might not have ever entered the world
of major felonies. … When the government decides to troll though
poverty-stricken neighborhoods, ordering its agents to seek out people who look ‘bad’
and test them at random for willingness to break the law in order to obtain large sums
of money, its conduct is unacceptable.” Unsurprisingly, as with any industry, there
are always bad eggs to be found. But for those better officers who actually
stick to the rules, we have, for example, official FBI guidelines about undercover operations
stating that “Except when authorized pursuant to these Guidelines, no undercover employee
shall engage in any activity that would constitute a violation of Federal, state, or local law
if engaged in by a private person acting without authorization.” In fact, if you read the whole document, undercover
FBI agents can’t even jaywalk or litter without express permission from a superior
or handler. Of course, an undercover agent posing as a
hardened criminal would look mighty suspicious if they dutifully obeyed every law. And any criminal operation could quickly weed
out any such undercover agents simply by asking them to break a law and seeing what happened
next. Again, to get around this sort of issue, most
officers are given prior approval to commit minor crimes that might come into play in
a given under cover scenario prior to deployment; the key here generally comes down to whether
or not committing the given minor crime will blow the officer’s cover or not or is integral
to the operation, such as selling or purchasing drugs. On that note, undercover agents can commit
more major crimes, including even bribing politicians, so long as prior approval to
do so is obtained. In the case where approval to commit a crime
or perform a given illegal activity isn’t obtained, undercover agents are often given
broad authorization to commit crimes that were “unforseen” if they believe doing
so to be “necessary and appropriate” to their continuing investigation or in some
cases if necessary for their own personal safety. In such a case, the guidelines note that permission
to commit the crime can be “retroactively authorized if appropriate”. All this said, these officers are usually
prohibited from engaging “in any act of violence” or from attempting to instigate
a crime themselves, but, again, there are exceptions. For example, they can engage in an act of
violence if doing so in either self defence or to protect the life or wellbeing of the
innocent. It’s also noted that generally permission
is required to break the law not just for more obvious reasons, but to ensure that the
officers are appropriately considering the issue of entrapment which was somewhat alluded
to in the aforementioned ATF case. But for anyone unfamiliar with the term, entrapment
is described thusly in the FBI guidelines: Entrapment occurs when the Government implants
in the mind of a person who is not otherwise disposed to commit the offense the disposition
to commit the offense and then induces the commission of that offense in order to prosecute. To avoid this and other such issues, any plan
suggested by an undercover agent must be checked and authorized by the upper echelons of FBI
command who need to ensure, amongst other things, that planning the crime is necessary
to reveal evidence of other, worse crimes or the like. So, for example, an undercover agent could
propose stealing some cars to take part in an illegal street race if doing so would allow
them to earn the trust of an individual they suspect has been hijacking trucks containing
millions of dollars worth of cargo… Officers are also often encouraged to develop
romantic relationships as a great tool to integrate oneself in a given organization,
though as we’ll get into in a minute, this one has caused major issues over in the UK
in recent years. But just as a general rule of thumb to keep
in mind- the more serious the crime being investigated, the more leeway an officer or
agent is likely to be given to commit crimes in their pursuit of arresting other people
committing crimes. As an aside, we should probably mention that
many of these protections are also granted to FBI and police informants who can be granted
blanket immunity for minor or agreed upon crimes they may commit while acting as an
informant in return for their testimony. This, too, is not without controversy owing
to the secrecy departments usually maintain with this sort of thing and the fact that
when deep investigations are sometimes done, it occasionally reveals things happening outside
of the rules, including in rare cases the embarrassment of informants getting away with
a vast array of crimes for their own benefit simply because they’re on good terms with
the authorities and are providing valuable information. On this note, in a report from 2011, it was
noted that the FBI allowed informants to break the law almost 6,000 times in that year alone. Being forced to report these tallies every
year began after it was revealed that the FBI was allowing famed mobster and many time
murderer James Bulger to operate a vast crime ring in exchange for him revealing information
about other mobster activities. Another reason these informants sometimes
cause controversy is when they more or less manufacture crimes to keep themselves useful
and on the payroll. As Former DEA agent Michael Levine notes,
“You want to catch bad guys, people who are committing crime, people who have committed
murder. You don’t want your informant to go out
and talk someone into it. You can do that all day long and fill jails
from the Bronx to Bogota, Colombia. It’s the easiest thing in the world to do,
but that’s not law enforcement.” Over in the UK the rules are somewhat similar,
though in more recent years the ability of undercover police to commit crimes has been
drastically limited after a series of scandals involving undercover police officers. These scandals primarily revolved around a
little-known covert unit of Scotland Yard known as the Special Demonstrations Squad. In a nutshell, covert officers working with
the SDS were tasked with infiltrating protest groups and the like. The Guardian would eventually reveal that
many officers were doing things like sleeping with those they were investigating and in
some cases, marrying and fathering children with their targets before, sometimes after
years of a relationship, disappearing forever when the investigation was over, including
potentially abandoning not just their unsuspecting spouse or partner (and, indeed, in some cases
the officers already had spouses besides in their real lives), but the children they had
with these women. Just as controversially, the officers had
a common practice of selecting a deceased child born around the same time as themselves
and with a similar name, and then assuming that identity without permission from the
surviving parents and relatives. Not only this, but they would go further and
research the various family member backgrounds and sometimes even visit the homes and areas
they were supposedly raised in to help their cover. Not just insensitive, this also in some cases
placed these surviving relatives in potential direct danger given the supposed association
between these people and the undercover officers’ assumed identity, especially when said officers
then up and disappeared when the investigation was over. In addition, other officers were found to
have taken drugs while undercover (a big no no due to the risk of becoming addicted, potential
to blow their cover inadvertently while under the effects of the drugs, and the fact that
narcotic use can weaken an officer’s testimony in court, potentially hurting the whole point
of the operation). In some cases they were also found to have
taken part in various acts of violence or other such more serious crimes, including
in one case a major arson incident in a public building that risked civilian lives. In perhaps the most famous case, involving
a highly decorated officer by the name of Bob Lambert, he was investigating an animal
rights group and so hitched up with an animal rights activist who would eventually become
the mother of his child. Again, this practice of forming romantic relationships
for undercover officers had formerly been considered (and still is in some agencies)
an invaluable tool to quickly integrate an agent within some organization. As for Bob’s lady, however, she only discovered
her whole relationship with him had been a sham after seeing his picture in the paper
some two decades after he disappeared from her life, leaving her to raise their child
alone and in poverty. She stated of this, “Bob was there by my
side through the 14 hours of labour in the autumn of 1985 when our son was born. He seemed to be besotted with the baby. I didn’t realise then that he was already
married with two other children…” She went on, “There can be no excuses for
what he did: for the betrayal, the manipulation and the lies … I loved him so much, but
now have to accept that he never existed…. I don’t understand what I am supposed to
have done that I was chosen by the state to be treated like this. I was no threat to national security and what
was my child – collateral damage?” During the investigation it was also noted
that undercover officers regularly withheld information about their activities from prosecutors
in instances where it would weaken the case they were building or otherwise get the undercover
officers in trouble. They also occasionally were found to have
allowed false evidence to be used against people. In response to the controversy, the British
government introduced sweeping legislation severely limiting the ability of undercover
officers to commit crimes and form relationships with those they were investigating. A Cliff notes version of the 80 page list
of instructions handed to officers is that sexual contact of any kind, as well as the
taking of any illegal drug during an investigation, was now technically banned. However, much in the same way FBI agents and
the like can commit crimes at their own discretion if they feel it necessary to their investigation,
the new guidelines noted that undercover officers could engage in sexual activity to mitigate
an immediate threat, but only to the smallest degree needed in a given case. While seeming absurd on the surface, this
is actually an important clause given that without it, discovering an undercover officer
would be as easy as simply mandating they have sex with someone. In addition, while undercover officers can’t
otherwise have sex with a person they’re investigating or in connection to an investigation,
official guidelines do permit them to engage in “communications of a sexual nature”
if they feel it is necessary to achieving their objective. So sexting is still considered OK apparently… Likewise, the guidelines note that while drugs
are absolutely not “authorised as a tactic of a deployment”, officers can take drugs
if there is an immediate, present threat to their own or another’s safety. As with the guidelines about having sex, in
such a scenario, the officer is only permitted to take enough drugs to “mitigate the threat”
and no more. So to sum up, undercover agents in most regions
of the world can absolutely commit crimes while undercover, though the extent and severity
of the crimes they are allowed to commit varies depending on who or what they are investigating. However, in general, to cover their own backsides
and ensure the case they are building against someone is as strong as possible, a good officer
will avoid committing crimes whenever possible.

    In my opinion, everyone representing the law (cops, lawyers, politicians, etcetera) should be held at a higher level. Meaning, if they break the law, their sentence will be much harsher than regular citizens. Those representing the law, must be publicly scrutinized and publicly emulated. If they break the law, and get away with it, so should everyone.

    Cops commit crime in uniform and get away with it, you'd have to be a complete idiot to think they don't undercover

    I heard a few more police troubles on Australian News and the few are busted and complained about. The Government is the worst thing that ever existed.

    Cops break any law they think they can cover up.

    In America, they can commit crimes on video and still get away with it. Cops are above the law here. That's well proven.

    Pshh- who still thought cops have to disclose their profession? Have these people never seen Training Day?

    Regular cops can lie to your face. It's bullshit.

    Wow. Like infiltrating protesters needs that crazy of tactics. N those people who were left with kids who then didn't know their dads deserve a bunch of money.

    Any good lawyer: There's sometimes NO line between the good guys and the bad guys.

    So it is legal for a policeman to lie to you, but if you lie to them it is obstruction of justice? Seems legit.

    40% of MURDERS go UNSOLVED.
    We're in the midst of an OPIOID EPIDEMIC. Yet police waste our TAX dollars to ENTRAP citizens for
    NON-VIOLENT offenses. PATHETIC.

    And more police corruption.

    Maybe the police should be scrapped.

    ALL COPS BREAK THE LAW! …….. SO WHAT MAKES YOU THINK THAT A LAW WILL STOP ANY COP, UNDERCOVER OR NOT. ……. i DON'T THINK THAT EVEN GETTING A DEATH SENTENCE WOULD DETER THEM!

  • Reply Lary Mayotte August 25, 2019 at 1:52 pm

    ALSO…….. ALL COPS ARE PERMITTED TO LIE! ……. SO ANYTIME A COP TALKS THERE IS A BETTER THAN 50 PERCENT CHANCE THE COP IS A LIRE. (it is more like 95 percent)
