Voice analyser snared policeman

Vancouver officer checked for stress level in Saanich job interview

By Lori Culbert

A new, computerized gadget designed to detect deception was used by a veteran Saanich police officer during a job interview with a rookie Vancouver cop, who eventually revealed allegations of perjury, evidence tampering and excessive use of force.

Saanich is the first police department in Canada to use the computerized voice stress analyser — which is more common in the U.S. — to determine if suspects are lying, and also relies on the instrument during final job interviews.
