For internal record keeping purposes, all confidential sources will be identified, using Department guidelines.

No juvenile will be used or receive any money as a confidential source without written approval of his/her parent or guardian and the MEG Director.
d) Illegal or Improper Activity

MEG Directors shall make available to the Department information summarizing the activity of the confidential source. Included shall be records of all monies paid and a recommendation for continued or discontinued utilization.
f) All information in the confidential source file shall remain confidential and may not be disclosed unless prescribed by law.
