The editorial staff would like to make two clarifications pertaining to the article Proactive Human Source Development, which appeared in the November 2010 issue. First, the scenario provided in the article is a fictitious one. Second, when operating sources, investigators must remain aware of restrictions that may limit the types of information a particular source may offer. For example, sources employed by financial organizations are subject to the provisions of the Right to Financial Privacy Act; those working for educational institutions are subject to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974; and sources within the health care and counseling professions are subject to a myriad of restrictions with respect to information they may share.
