Abstract

Private entities play a substantial and growing role across the criminal system. It is both impractical and undesirable to eliminate all private influences. Instead, policy makers can distinguish beneficial private influences from harmful ones by focusing on those private entities with the closest relationship to law enforcement. These entities have fewer incentives to guard against law enforcement overreach and thus deserve heightened scrutiny.
