Antinarcotics chief: 20 agents fired for failing polygraph test

Santo Domingo.- National Drugs Control Agency (DNCD) president Julio Souffront on Tuesday revealed that 20 agents were fired for failing a polygraph test, and ordered back to their military branches.

He said a lie detector measures physiological responses and changes in blood pressure, heart, and respiratory rates and responses on the skin, which question the veracity of the answers from the subjected to the test.


The head of the DNCD also announced changes in its commands Tuesday afternoon, including division and departmental chiefs, among other units, which Souffront called “routine.”
