How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Ticklehewire.com is a first-rate, daily news site for federal law enforcement news that aggregates the best stories from around the country from news outlets including the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Politico, Associated Press, Reuters, The Hill, Los Angeles Times, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and Fox News.

It also includes original content and commentary from former law enforcement officials.

The site was founded in 2008 by Allan Lengel, a former Washington Post reporter who has reported on major events including the anthrax case, public corruption, terrorism and the Chandra Levy disappearance. He has also worked for the Detroit News, ABC’s Brian Ross investigative unit and served as an intern for the late investigative columnist Jack Anderson.

Besides the website, ticklethewire.com puts out a weekly newsletter that includes commentary and links to the stories in the past week.

The site’s readers include current and former agents and officials from the FBI, ATF, DEA, Secret Service, Customs and Border Protection, the Justice Department, U.S. Attorneys offices, Homeland Security and TSA. Readers also include criminal defense attorneys and former prosecutors.

The site reaches key decision makers in various agencies who work on policy, budgets or purchasing, and has been cited in major publications including the Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, New York Daily News, the Drudge Report, Huffington Post, Talking Points Memo and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show.

Every year, ticklethewire.com names a “Fed of the Year.”

The name for the site, ticklethewire.com, comes from a law enforcement term, which means to create a situation that will encourage targets of a probe to talk on a wiretapped phone.
