    Depends on the crime, but unless there was a very serious threat to personal safety I wouldn't see why not. In fact, even with a threat to personal safety if the crime was serious enough.

    Also, what would you class as an informant? Somebody who infiltrated a criminal organisation, or just somebody who called the police to report something?

    Depends mainly on who/what id be informing on and thus what i get out of it...
    e.g. if i was offered a million to inform on a Russian mob boss unless they made me dissapear and that i couldnt be traced the **** would it. If i was to inform on some petty drug dealer hell id do it for a tenner..

    Snitches get stitches. Plus the hood would hate me. So allow that
