Home Ministry continuing lie detector tests
The Ministry of Home Affairs polygraphed ranks of the police force’s Narcotics Branch and Crime Intelligence Unit in 2013.
Delivering a progress report yesterday on his Ministry, Minister Clement Rohee said that the tests were done as part of efforts to ensure that the Guyana Police Force remained a professional body. He said that several ranks failed the examination.
The use of these tests as the basis for determining employment has been criticized.
