According to a watchdog, safety and training issues put FBI undercover personnel in risk.

Inspector general’s audit says training for undercover agents is inadequate, some activities not tracked. Inspectors call for comprehensive training plan for initial undercover certification plus continuing education. Short-term undercover operations are not tracked, report finds. Staffing shortages led to increased risk to agents, the inspector general’s office says. The last agent killed while undercover was in 2004; no one knows how many have been killed since then.
