Many errors are made regarding the witness protection program and law enforcement. Local agencies do not use it, yet the Chicago case was shown to be local, referencing a "DA" or District Attorney. That is also an error as Illinois utilizes State's Attorneys as prosecutors. The detective/"agent" involved does not wear an FBI or even a Chicago PD badge, instead having one similar to the LAPD or a city police agency. A person in the federal witness protection program would deal with Deputy US Marshals, not local police. See more
