Officer Matt Gibson agrees to give Jill Tuck immunity in exchange for her testimony against Hoffman. However the police department doesn't have the authority to grant immunity, immunity can only be granted by the district attorney's office. The police are not allowed to promise a suspect immunity unless they have first cleared it with the DA's office. They can tell the suspect that they will recommend that the DA grant them immunity if they haven't yet spoken to them but they have to make it clear that it is not ultimately up to them.

Miscellaneous 

When the IA tech is trying to track down Hoffman's location by hopping through all proxies until it can find the real IP address, the ipconfig output of the tech's computer is seen in the background. When displaying the name of the IA network in the ipconfig output, that configuration property label is misspelled as "Desciption" instead of "Description".

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Hoffman's stitches disappear as the film progresses. This is due to the fact that the events of "Saw 3D" take place two months after the end of Saw VI, and flashes back a couple of times at the beginning of the film to establish continuity.

There are two ways Nina's trap could have been easily solved. Bobby could have either used one of the many objects around the room to knock her unconscious and remove the key, or he could have put her hand over her mouth with the string between his fingers and pull it out that way.
