Criminal Justice Discussion

Community Correction officials now manage convicted sex offenders with a newer tool. Post Conviction Sex Offender Polygraph Testing (PCSOT) is a treatment program involving the offender’s Probation Officer, Polygraph Examiner, and the Therapist. PCSOT calls for the offender to be polygraphed every three to six months regarding the conditions of their probation. 

whats your understanding of how PCSOT is applied in your state. Are there official policies regarding its application? Are there any research studies regarding its use and effectiveness? If PCSOT were eliminated, would Community Corrections be able to find a suitable replacement?
