Custom Officers Fail Polygraph Tests

The Jamaica Gleaner The Contraband Enforcement Team (CET) reportedly struggled to find persons to staff a planned Airport Interdiction Task Force in September 2006 as many failed lie detector tests.

"(Embassy official) explained to the commissioner (of customs) that of seven CET people who were polygraphed last September (2006) only two were deemed to have passed," the United States Embassy in Kingston reported in a diplomatic cable dated March 2007 and acquired by The Gleaner through whistle-blowing organisation WikiLeaks.
