acquiescence for detection
The lending of either active or passive assistance to a person engaged in the commission of criminal offense, either as a feigned accomplice or otherwise, for the purpose of detecting and apprehending him. The distinction between acquiescence for detection and entrapment which is a defense to a criminal prosecution is that between merely testing a suspect by giving him opportunity to commit the offense and actually inducing him to commit a violation of law which otherwise he would not have committed. 21 Am J2d Crim L § 143.
