Can my identity be kept confidential if I want to assist law enforcement?

The answer to that is yes and no. It's going to depend on how much information you give law enforcement and to what extent you're going to be involved in any type of assistance, such as if you were just to give somebody a name of an individual, that officer may go out and watch that individual and then develop their own case based on their observations.

However if you are directly involved in the case, such as you go out and make a [buy 00:00:36] for an individual and turn it over to law enforcement, then it's likely that your name will come up down the line, should that case go to trial and should there be a deposition in the matter.
