How police reliance on confidential informants in Colorado carries risk
A Denver Post investigation into the use of confidential informants by law-enforcement agencies in Colorado found many cases in which information informants provided turned out to be wrong or unsupported by evidence.

Police departments are left to their own discretion, and while many have comprehensive policies, some have none at all. A review of Denver Police Department data on confidential informants found that only about 40 percent of those used in fiscal 2014 had proven themselves reliable in previous cases.
