The use of covert or confidential sources to ‘whistleblow’ or inform on suspected unlawful activities is a matter of huge public interest and concern. A Special Commission of Inquiry was set up in January 2013 to look at attitudes, law and policy, the role of regulators and how confidential human sources can be protected.
We are able to offer your organisation, whether in the private or public sector, bespoke training that will make you aware of your legal, moral and ethical responsibilities if you use or are contemplating using a covert human source.
These practices and procedures are well established in the law enforcement sector but many parts of the public and private sectors are unaware of the risks that attach to using this investigative method.
Your business or organization may be at significant risk if you mis-handle a covert human source and do not achieve the highest standards of knowledge and application.
We have the very best College of Police accredited associates, probably the best standard globally, to raise awareness, ensure you operate within the law, are accountable for all elements of source use and reduce the risks associated with covert human sources.
