    How to use "Informant" in context?

    Anyone who has worked in a professional setting in any capacity can vouch for the importance of an informant. Informants are people who provide information to law enforcement officers in order to avoid criminal penalties or to achieve a criminal objective. Because informants face a very real danger of repercussions if they are caught, they must have trust in their handlers to ensure that information is relayed accurately and without bias.

    Most informants originally operated on the basis of trust. As time went by, however, trust eroded and communication became trusting less and less.
