REPORT RECOMMENDS POLICE TAKE LIE-DETECTOR TESTS

Police officers could be subjected to lie-detector tests and honesty oaths during future corruption investigations, according to the first draft of a report by the Mollen Commission.

The report also recommends that the Police Department enact stricter recruiting standards and that it strip pensions from officers convicted of crimes, New York Newsday said Thursday.

In all, the report mentions some 50 possible changes in how the department recruits, trains, deploys and disciplines its 31,000 officers to break what it calls "recurring cycle of police wrongdoing," the story said.
