Police officers in Jacksonville are polygraphed before they are hired, but once hired, they are never asked or forced to take another lie detector test. Jacksonville police officers have been convicted of murder, rape, bank fraud, and theft, but have never been charged, arrested, or prosecuted for lying (perjury). There are many good police officers, but bad officers should be held to a higher, if not the same, standard for their misconduct. Police officers can not only take away your liberty, but also can take your life with virtual immunity.
