informer, denouncer


Explanation:
'Informer' is a person, sometimes former convicted criminel, who "works" for the police and other services denouncing people, reporting incidents, selling information, generally 'informing' the police of information which may be of use to them in a particular enquiry.

'Denouncer'has the same meaning of someone who denounces, informs but is not used in the specific context of selling information which is the reserve of an informer.
