Confidential Informants in New Jersey

CI_Report: Confidential Informant Report

This report was commissioned by the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey in Partnership with the Criminal Law Reform Project. The report examines the New Jersey's use of confidential informants at all levels of law enforcement and reveals inconsistencies among policies governing the use of confidential informants, resulting in the violation of informants' rights and compromises in the integrity of criminal investigations. After reviewing the study, three New Jersey counties, Cumberland, Morris and Salem, have begun to reform their policies.
