Indiana State Police Credited for Polygraph Testing

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): No lie – Indiana is receiving credit for casework conducted by the State Police Polygraph Unit.

According to the Journal Gazette, the Indiana State Police Polygraph Unit is the first polygraph-accredited agency that uses standards under the national Polygraph Law Enforcement Accreditation, otherwise known as PLEA.

The program uses the same standards as the federal government to examine the likelihood and odds of whether criminals are lying. The tests measure pulses and respirations in breathing, and are regularly conducted by federal officers. 

Indiana officers were credited for their investigations that used the standardized polygraph tests as part of their casework. The Indiana unit is staffed by five regional examiners and one supervisor.
