In following sentence: "Turning him in will give the cop the
promotion he has been waiting" I don't quite understand "will."
Background is about an undercover cop facing a conundrum when he has to catch a drug dealer who turn to be a friend of him.
Wouldn't be possible that "will" is a mistake, really meaning "jail"? Does it make sense in English to say "Turning him in jail give the cop..."?
If we tip off Sgt. Smith about this person, this will give him the promotion he's been waiting for.
