OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — A Washington State Patrol manager arriving at the Olympia headquarters for a meeting noticed a book on the seat of a parked car about “how to beat the lie detector.”
The Patrol says Criminal Records Manager Heather Anderson called the Human Resources division last Wednesday and was told a job candidate was in the process of taking a polygraph exam.
When the patrol matched the candidate to the car he was told he would not be considered for the job, a civilian manager in the property management division.
Spokesman Dan Coon said Tuesday that past misdemeanors, such as marijuana possession, don’t automatically disqualify someone for a job with the patrol, but lying does.
