    it is indeed true the memo did say they are looking for 2 detectives with bachelor degrees to train on the polygraph to complement the background investigation. I don't know if this is official or what I don't get it how like 4 or 5 polygrAphers will test almost 1500-2000 people. Maybe they might start using it like the ISP which is on people with alot of inconsistencies

    Markdh720,
    i appreciate your response i was just as curious to see where it came from. No i am not cpd i want to be though thats why i have that screen name, anyways i personally have a negative opinion towards the polygraph because it is junk science. From my personal experience i have failed 1, and passed 3, i think it is more of a interrogation tool rather than a lie detection machine. Maybe CPD might start to use it like the ISP does on selected candidates if there is lots of inconsistencies on the psych or something. Now from what i hear 1st of all the CPD psych causes alot of problems from the get go, now if they put this bs machine in there is going to be nothing but problems, good candidates getting weeded out, and the city is asking for trouble, because if they do challenge the results their is no burden of proof the city can provide in the courts and it would be a bad reason for disqualification. Also as everyone sees CPD needs more man power and the city is trying to or will spend the money on a bs machine which i think is ridiculous, they should focus their attention on the needs of the department, maybe they need a new superintendent since J-Fed is not doing that good of a job in my opinion for the officers, or the people. E.G. - Taste of Chicago, oh yea if you can scan it i would love to read it. Thanks

    tactcpd,
    i cant post a link because i read it in the cpd daily bulletin in paper form. i assume you're CPD like your name suggests. the posting was in the bulletins within the last two weeks if you're interested in looking it up on the department computers or in paper form. if i see it when i work tonight, maybe I'll scan it when i get home.

    by the way, i agree that the city will not use it as it is just another venue for lawsuits and appeals (which cost money) in the hiring process. i think that JW and the exempts are just looking at options and changes that could "improve" (but wont) the hiring process.

    If Cook County found the money for Poly's then I wouldn't doubt it if Chicago eventually did to help protect the dept's public image and get rid of as many bad apples as possible from jump.
