      • Can you do your job without them?

    2. Do you testify?

    3. Can you give examples of several cases (or types of cases) that you have worked on?

    4. What are the goals of your investigation?  How long is the typical investigation?

    5. How many buys do you consummate with an individual prior to arrest?

    6. What (if any) issues with entrapment do you see as a challenge to your activities?
