Abstract:

The U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command USACIDC, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service NCIS, the Air Force Office of Special Investigations AFOSI, and the Defense Criminal Investigative Service DCIS, collectively know as the Defense Criminal Investigative Organizations DCIOs, have primary responsibility for conducting felony criminal investigations occurring within the military community or involving military members. The use of sources to detect and resolve crimes is a recognized, legitimate, and sanctioned technique used by law enforcement activities. The DCIOs refer to sources by various titles. The classifications of sources relate to differences in identity protection, the amount of direction the sources receive, and in reporting requirements. Although the DCIOs use different terms to describe sources, their policies and procedures regarding sources are similar. These policies and procedures govern the recruitment, control, operation, and management of sources, as well as identity protection and documentation requirements.
