FLASH | Police recruits to face lie detector test

by on August 24, 2016
The Nigerian Police, as part of the vari­ous steps to ensure effective recruitment ex­ercise, is to subject new recruits from its ongoing recruitment exercise to a compulsory polygraph (lie detector) test.
The test, according to the Force, is targeted at ensuring that candidates who will take part in the recruitment exercise are not of questionable char­acter and that their con­ducts are in line with the standard rules of behavior expected of an individual who is ready to be a police officer.
In a press statement made available by the Force Public Relations Officer, DCP Don N Awunah, it said, “This test will be in addition to the general background check, biometrics, medi­cal, physical examination, aptitude, oral and psycho­logical tests.
“The Police will also conduct a thorough veri­fication of all documents submitted by prospective candidates.
“The Police Academy and other training colleg­es across the country will be equipped to carry out the necessary tests”.
The Acting IGP, Ibra­him Idris, while reviewing the ongoing recruitment exercise made it clear that no candidate will be ad­mitted for training at the various Police training schools without undergo­ing these prescribed tests.
The ongoing exercise is expected to enlist 10,000 personnel into the Nigeria Police Force.
