Being undercover is disguising one's own identity or using an assumed identity for the purposes of gaining the trust of an individual or organization to learn secret information or to gain the trust of targeted individuals in order to gain information or evidence.
Undercover Operation means an investigation involving a series of related undercover activities over a period of time by an undercover employee. For purposes of These Guidelines, a "series of related undercover activities" generally consists of more Than three separate substantive contacts by an undercover employee with the Individual under investigation. However, undercover activity involving sensitive or Fiscal circumstances constitutes an undercover operation regardless of the number of Contacts involved. A contact is "substantive" if it is a communication with another Person, whether by oral, written, wire, or electronic means, which includes information of Investigative interest.
Undercover Operations are essential to the detection, prevention, and prosecution of white collar crimes, public corruption, terrorism, organized crime, offenses involving controlled substances, and other priority areas of investigation. However, these techniques inherently involve an element of deception and may require cooperation with persons whose motivation and conduct are open to question, and so should be carefully considered and monitored.
