cocaine purchased by ABC undercover agents"This is a very important, and also dangerous, function of ABC agents," said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.  CSLEA represents ABC agents, along with 7,000 other law enforcement, public safety and consumer protection professionals who work for the state of California.  "ABC agents must work undercover as drug buyers and become trusted by drug dealers.  To do this for months at a time for each investigation can be taxing and certainly puts the safety of those agents at risk."
