Just keep an eye out for walking stereotypes. They stick out like a sore thumb. You can't take a college educated, groomed and trained law enforcement
officer with years of professional experience and turn them into a dirty hippy overnight.
They stick out badly if you look. Seriously. Tie-dye leggings with peace symbol ear rings, John Lennon sunglasses. That kind of thing. Sometimes
you'll see awkward people who are JUST a TAD bit to old to be attending, looking a little lost or overwhelmed.
That is, of course, if it's not a super dooper deep cover investigation by some really scary intelligence services like MI6, CIA or the FBI..those
agencies can get actual criminals to be "informants". Those informants blend in perfectly because they're NOT law enforcement. The informants are
usually trying to strike a deal and get their sentences reduced or charges dropped.
So, be wary of new "friends", especially if they seem eager to do or say something. Informants usually need information or action from someone to be
of use to the intelligence community. That is, of course, unless they're just doing a "names and pictures" kind of operation.
Just keep your eyes peeled and don't be to eager to make new friends, especially really enthusiastic friends.
