File 18

File 18 is the title of a law enforcement newsletter published by Lt. Larry Jones of the Boise, Idaho police department and head of the Cult Crime Impact Network (CCIN). Issue #1 was privately published on May 2, 1986.

It purported to uncover the level of Satanic and occult crime in America. In the first issue, Dr. Al Carlisle of the Utah State Prison System is quoted as estimating that "between 40,000 - 60,000 ritual homicides per year occur in the United States." Disclaimers were included warning that the newsletter was "CONFIDENTIAL. RESTRICTED ACCESS INFORMATION FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT USE ONLY." File 18 ceased publication after 1989, after a run of about 20 issues.

At its height, the newsletter claimed an audience of more than one thousand law enforcement officials.
