Council Approves Computer Voice Stress Analysis For Police Department
The Chillicothe Police Department will soon have a piece of equipment that can detect is a person may not be telling the truth. Chief Jon Maples asked the City Council on Monday for permission to purchase a Computer Voice Stress Analysis machine.
Like a Lie Detector, the finding are not admissible in court, but they can indicate if the officers should continue the questioning or maybe change the direction of their questioning.
Chief Maples says this is a used piece of equipment. It was likely used for demonstration purposed at a trade show and is offered to the city at half the normal price. It comes with a four year warranty and a five day training program for one of the officers.
The Council approved the expenditure and also approved amending the budget if it is necessary.
