NARSOL Calling for In-Person Polygraphs for Sex Offenders to be Suspended

Local News Thursday, April 23rd, 2020


A national group representing the so-called interests of sex offenders is now taking aim at supervising authorities who require in-person visits to administer polygraph, or lie detector, exams.

The National Association for Rational Sexual Offense Laws, or NARSOL, says it’s clearly obvious the close proximity required in connecting someone to a polygraph puts, both, recipient and administrator of such an exam at greater risk of COVID infection.

NARSOL goes onto say many who are supervised by probation and parole, and are required to submit to non-essential polygraphs, depend on public transportation also putting  more people at risk.

The objection by NARSOL comes on the heels of the same group recently calling for in-person registration of sex offenders to be suspended and for many criminals in the correctional system to be released in the interest of being protected from the COVID virus.
