LEO: Investigator LE Op. 366
April 23, 1980
It is not ethically improper for an attorney to employ as an investigator
a police officer or a special police officer. DR:5-103(B) impliedly
contemplates such authority and DR:4-101(E) requires the attorney to
employ any investigator under terms making him an agent of the attorney
for purposes of DR:4-101(B) and (E).
