TERM

wall stop

CONTEXT & COMMENTS

Def.: Tactic used by a law enforcement agency to protect or “wall off” an investigation and cover the federal presence from the target’s knowledge by having a different law enforcement agency  arrest the target without jeopardizing the larger investigation.    
       • The DEA, who knew of a car that was to deliver cocaine, asked local police to conduct a wall stop. The local police stopped the car due to a broken taillight. Therefore, the suspect believed that the seizure of the contraband from his/her vehicle was merely fortuitous.
