Abstract This article explores from a comparative perspective some of the legal, evidential and procedural issues raised by undercover policing. It focuses on two of the more common, yet legally problematic, techniques of covert investigation: namely entrapment and covert interviewing. The comparison draws on legal developments in Australia, Canada and Europe.
