EN38 is the cipher given to a former undercover officer of the National Public Order Intelligence Unit who was deployed in the 2000s into one group and report on others. Sir John Mitting, chair of the Undercover Policing Inquiry, has ruled that it will restrict the officers real and cover name in the Inquiry.[1][2]

As a police officer

In Undercover Policing Inquiry

  • 2 May 2018: Mitting minded to restrict real and cover names,[3] writing:[4]
EN38 is a serving police officer. EN38 was deployed into one group over several years by the National Public Order Intelligence Unit and reported on others. Members and associates of the group posed and still pose a real risk to safety. Publication of the cover name of EN38 might lead to the identification of the real name, in which case the risks would materialise. I am not prepared to run those risks.... Further, the ability of EN38 to fulfil valuable current police duties might be impaired by publication. It is not in the public interest to run that risk.
  • 30 Oct 2018: Mitting rules to restrict both real and cover names, writing:[7] in the ruling, Mitting stated:[7]
If it is suggested that, because EN38 is still engaged in police work, so the undercover work performed for the National Public Order Intelligence Unit must be the subject of public scrutiny, I reject the suggestion.
