Essex Police Use Polygraph Testing for Lie Detection
Polygraph Testing for Lie Detection – Used by Essex Police
Essex Criminals and Sex Offenders Continue Lie Detection Tests in 2020
“The polygraph examination itself is carried out in three stages, with an interview, followed by the polygraph test and a post-test discussion. We have seen some participants tell us about reoffending during the pre-test interview and others make admissions after undergoing the polygraph. We have had occasions where offenders have admitted further offences or breaches of preventative orders, which have triggered investigations that are ongoing.
We have also seen some admit that they may have potential contact with children, which has allowed us to directly intervene and keep people safe.”
