ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Administers of lie detector tests are wrapping up week-long training sessions in Albuquerque with Homeland Security Investigations.

Polygraphers this week were in Albuquerque for advance lie detector training courses designed to make sure polygraph tests hold up in federal court.

HIS agents say they wanted to make sure all lie detector tests were being conducted universally in the state.

New Mexico State Police, FBI, Dona Ana Sheriff's Department and Las Cruces and Hobbs police polygraphers took part in the training. The Northeast Counterdrug Training Center also helped with the courses.
