Lying probationers and parolees: The issue of polygraph surveillance
Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts
Probationers and parolees do not always tell the truth, and the officers who supervise them assume this. How can they tell when someone is lying? One way is through use of the polygraph--commonly, but not quite accurately, referred to as the "lie detector." Authors Risdon N. Slate and Patrick R. Anderson discuss polygraph accuracy, polygraph surveillance of probationers, and state and federal court findings regarding polygraph surveillance.
