Voice Risk Analysis

Today’s Times has a wonderful article looking at Harrow Council in London who have been part of a lie detector scheme when it comes to spotting benefit cheats. The use of “voice risk analysis” has so far saved the Borough £336,000 in false payments.

With Durham also testing the scheme, no doubt South Tyneside will also be watching the results very closely. After all, this Borough has a lot of unanswered questions at the moment, like who is BRENDA, where are the contents of a certain 18 ballot boxes and “Do You Know Who I Am?”.
