I have a character who used to be in undercover narcotics and has now moved on to Homicide but I'm unclear as to how many are aware of the details of her assignment. So, my questions are:
Is the identity of an undercover cop ever revealed to the public or other cops? And if so are the other cops in the department also aware about the details of the undercover assignment? Or are there only certain people allowed to know what went on during the assignment, especially if the assignment ended badly for the undercover cop?
