Department of Corrections gets lie detector gear

by Krystal Paco

Guam - The Department of Corrections will be administering polygraph examinations on 18 new correction recruits.

DepCor spokesperson Officer Jeff Limo says the department had previously received the assistance of the Guam Police Department for the polygraph tests.  Limo was sent off-island for training and last year the department made the $7,800 purchase. "It's intense.  One polygraph will take probably three to six hours to do just one person and that's going through various questions and four to five tests if six needed on one individual," he said.

Limo says the corrections recruits will also be required to undergo forensic examinations and the department hopes to have the new cycle begin by the end of the month.
