Task Force Operations: Lessons Learned from the Murder of a CI

Debates over who was "in charge," governing policy, jurisdiction, investigative oversight and civil litigation are now front and center. This seminar details some of the collateral impact of that event and makes some best practice recommendations to defend yourself, your team, and your agency.
