My question involves police conduct in the State of: the U.S.
I had been under the impression that the police may engage in certain types of otherwise illegal activities in furtherance of an official investigation. An example of this type of activity could include, but not be limited to; an nypd undercover officer posing as a radical extremist and interacting with a target of an investigation so as to gain information on a potential act against the U.S. Are police departments allowed to engage in this type of activity? Are only certain types of police such as the F.B.I. or the D.E.A. allowed to engage in this type behavior?
