You know I'm trying to learn law enforcement, right?
I have a suggestion: In the form that you send to the various State Police departments when you invite them to participate in a federal investigation, you should add a blurb at the bottom, something that's auto-generated in the word processing program. It should read:
Standard, computer-generated blurb to Vermont State Police: (All other partner law enforcement agencies ignore the following:)
Try not to fuck this up, okay? For detection efficiency and effectiveness purposes, it is counterproductive to just tell people of the details of an investigation. (Ref. Law Enforcement Procedural Guide, Vol. III, Page 72, chapter entitled "Law Enforcement and You: How to Improve Your Chances of Detecting Something If You Don't Brag to Your Wives and Friends that You're In On Something Big.")
