There are reports that police officers refusing lie detector tests are threatening legal action.

The report indicates that several officers who have refused the tests have been transferred.

Commissioner of Police, Gary Griffith, is maintaining that there is nothing wrong with his decision to administer voluntary polygraph tests to officers stationed at certain police stations or branches of the police service.

In a television interview on Tuesday, Mr Griffith explained the logic behind his decision.

The Commissioner added that he finds it alarming that officers will be reluctant to answer what should be straightforward questions.

He said that he is looking forward to the legal challenge.

Meanwhile, the Police Social and Welfare Association has said that the issue of polygraph testing for police officers should not be selective.

Speaking with News Power Now,  President of the Association Acting ACP Michael Seales said that it is very important that all officers be subject to the tests.
