Since this mission features relatively under experienced detectives, as well as a potentially volatile target group, the task of setting out expectations and boundaries was prioritized. Although the gaining of trust is a necessity for all cover work, it is determined by department policies that major felonies such as armed robbery and grand theft were not proportionate to the gains associated with infiltrating Ruckus. With the implementation of federal departments, we also in good faith could not permit the use of marijuana but can stomach lesser, non-property related activities. It is the belief that Detective Underwood’s status as a woman will by her some leeway in some of these situations. Playing these risks as well as assessing when to report or play into actionable intelligence was concluded to be a priority in training due to the inexperience and make-up of the cover environment. Memo to DRNC Undercover AgentsWith the Democratic Republican National convention on the horizon and the Ruckus Society looking to infiltrate and induce protests and potentially physically violent acts , the decision has been made to insert Detectives Freeman and Underwood into their ranks and extract information about their intentions. As intimate as Freeman and Underwood will be to the Ruckus society, combined with the nature of the group as a whole, the boundaries of what behavior is allowed to accomplish the task at hand and what would cross ethical lines for this operation needs to be established. The safety of our agents is surely the main priority, but the need to establish clear but repeatable boundaries for our agents also assures the success of missions yet unknown. The Ruckus society almost certainly participates in minor offenses within their social cliques. Theft and the consumption of marijuana are almost certainly the most common. Because of the laws in the state of Florida banning recreational use, as well as the federal ban on cannabis, we suggest avoiding the consumption of marijuana unless otherwise unavoidable ( Rosenthal, 2021). In terms of the petty theft that the Ruckus gang is believed to be frequently involved in, it is our opinion that the small scale damages or inconvenience incurred in any participation of Freeman and Underwood in these crimes are outweighed by the importance of the information gained by securing middle and high tier Ruckus gang leadership trust. It has long been decided in the world of undercover policing that it is dirty work, and some rules may have to be bent to secure disproportionately larger gains ( Watchel,1992).What will not be perceived in the same light is the participation of more serious crimes in nature, or activities that can cause serious and lifelong bodily harm. A price tag for petty theft is not only smaller, but more contained after the fact by the department. The connection of our officers to felonies like armed robbery or grand theft is not in the nature of undercover police work ( Watchel, 1992). Our objective is to stop a series of felonies, not be complicit in them. In the same vein, Freeman and Underwood must be made aware of the fact that the cessation of all criminal activity on behalf of the Ruckus society is the final goal. If Freeman or Underwood are made aware of illegal activities, any and all action should be taken to alert their supervisor and the department can decide the course of action. Despite the fact Freeman and Underwood are being given a tremendous amount of trust, they still cannot see the whole picture from inside the ranks of the Ruckus society. Recent feedback from the surveillance of environmental protesting groups in the United Kingdom showed that information can be extracted and acted on without revealing the undercover officers (Sclembach, 2018). The department’s leadership will have to take great care in ensuring the insight is acted on in such a way as not to blow their cover, but neither Detective Freeman or Underwood determine whose rights and property are protected. If actionable intelligence can be reported safely, we high encourage them to do so whenever practical.Before we send Freeman and Underwood into the proverbial lion’s den, the department must establish precisely what techniques and strategies they should use to not only secure their safety, but the trust of the Ruckus society members they will be with as well as the integrity of the department once our progress inevitably goes public. Primarily, Underwood and Freeman must understand that abusive police deception is dangerous for the ethical perception of the department and the criminal justice system as a whole. The unnecessary disclosure of nonvital medical information, personal facts such as family life as well as the covering up of their own secret acts is not ethical police work and is counterproductive ( Hadjimatheou, 2017). Additionally, the criteria for disclosing certain information, whether believed to be true or not, or whether to be dangerous or harmless is a serious matter for deep undercover work. The agents need to understand that the possession of intelligence leading to the prevention of a crime or an eventual arrest must go through a risk assessment ( Hadjimatheou, 2017). Is this information inherently dangerous? Does the proliferation of the intelligence make it more dangerous in nature if acted upon by the department? Such questions are key in deep cover work, as relaying information while at Ruckus camp may be difficult if not at times impossible.No more than 100 words
