A senior garda familiar with CHIS told the Irish Examiner the system was "as good a system as you are going to get". He said handlers were highly trained and strictly supervised.
The investigation examined the relationship between the unit and the informant, whether it was part of the official system or "off book", whether Boylan was allowed to conduct his own operations unhindered and what senior management knew about it.
There has been at least one high profile case in the courts in recent times where garda used an informant outside the CHIS system.

The Garda Sochna Ombudsman Commission (GSOC) spent four years examining it, stemming from a specific investigation into alleged collusion between members of an elite Garda unit and a convicted drug trafficker Kieran Boylan.
In a separate, special report to the justice minister, the watchdog called for reform and adherence to the CHIS system and for a new level of "intrusive" oversight.
