POLYGRAPH UNIT

Over the years, the demands for polygraph services have increased to deal with the high levels of corruption which permeated the Jamaica Constabulary Force and The Jamaica Defence Force. The Unit which is located at the National Police College of Jamaica in Twickenham Park, St. Catherine has expanded to a “Centre of Excellence” which was officially opened on October 2014.

Ninety percent (90%) tests conducted are for the purpose of pre-employment to the JCF. MOCA’s integrity screening initiatives have resulted in the testing of JCF and JDF members who are scheduled for promotion, transfer, specialized courses, or placement/ appointment to sensitive positions.

The polygraphers have also extended their expertise across the region, having conducted polygraph examinations in countries such as Grenada, Guyana, Montserrat, St. Lucia, Turks & Caicos, St. Kitts and Nevis.
