Because of the vulnerability of the information and the threat imposed by the corruption inside the law enforcement system, the case must be given a confidential status particularly on the police force. The entire case activity and its results must be directly coordinated with the superiors of the Department of Homeland Security and the top officials only of the police force for the necessary executive orders and authorization.
This is mainly to prevent leakages and compromise through the corrupt officials who are likely working with the terrorist group being pursued and to avoid unprofessional action inside the division. Inspite of the gravity of the case, proper process of acquiring authorization must still be followed though can be coordinated only to trusted officials because of the established threat of corruption.
Indeed, the confidentiality of the information and the entire activity must also be prioritized for it to produce significant results in the aspect of protecting the safety of the society.
