The Use and Control of Informants: A Patrol Officer's Primer

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has developed an online course entitled “The Use and Control of Informants: A Patrol Officer’s Primer” that can be taken via this website. The purpose of this course is to provide law enforcement officers with a basic knowledge of how to develop and manage confidential informants. This course has been updated and includes "Rachel's Law" and Section 914.28, Florida Statutes.

Certified officers may be awarded two hours of training that can be applied toward the 40 hour mandatory retraining requirement.
