Volume 2, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 1605-5810



In 1997 Prof. A. Padayachee, requested the development of a module for Forensic Criminology for the University of Durban Westville, one particular chapter being "Investigative tools", meaning all Truth Verification techniques. As a long practising polygraph operator, qualified in forensic psychophysiology in 1982, I was asked by Trustech Israel, to analyse their latest product, the Truster Pro.

It soon became clear that this knowledge should not be restricted to the academic world but be made available to the real practitioners in the field. To share my knowledge of Truth Verification tools and the Truster Pro in particular we composed this article. I hope you enjoy it.
This paper is directed at people involved, or merely interested, in the fight of crime. The purpose is to provide or to improve the basic knowledge of "Truth Verification" needed by any investigator.
