FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT POLYGRAPH EXAMINATIONS

 

WHAT DOES A POLYGRAPH CONSIST OF?

A Polygraph Examination (lie detector test) consists of three separate and distinct phases:

The “Pre-Test” interview, the “In-Test” phase and the “Post-Test” interview.

 

PRE-TEST INTERVIEW – During the pre-test interview, the Polygraphist (Polygraph Examiner) will explain your legal rights and the voluntary nature of the examination. Also discussed is your medical, physical, and psychological background as well as your knowledge of the investigation and an explanation on how the instrument works.

 

IN-TEST PHASE – At this point the Polygraph Examiner (Polygraphist) will review all the pertinent test questions with you and then conduct a “Demonstration Test” to help them assess your suitability for additional tests. Several tests will then be conducted which will include the reviewed questions.  There will be no surprise questions on any tests. The Polygraph Examiner will then analyze the results of each test to arrive at an opinion.

 

POST-TEST INTERVIEW – During the post-test interview, The Polygraph Examiner will discuss the results of the “In-Test” and provide you with their opinion.

 

WHAT IF I AM TELLING THE TRUTH, BUT I AM NERVOUS ABOUT TAKING THE EXAMINATION?

It is normal for an innocent person to be nervous, the Polygraph Examiner is aware of this. Nervousness does not prevent them from distinguishing between the truth and deception.

 

I HAVE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, WON’T THAT LOOK AS THOUGH I’M LYING?

No, while blood pressure is one of the recordings, high blood pressure does not invalidate the results of the test. If you are currently under a doctor’s care for a medical condition, be sure to tell your examiner.

 

DOES THE TEST HURT? CAN I GET AN ELECTRICAL SHOCK?

No, the test does not hurt. Also, there is no possibility of you getting an electrical shock.

It is most important that during the examination you be as comfortable as possible. The only discomfort experienced may be a slight pressure on the arm from the blood pressure cuff.

 

SUPPOSE THE INSTRUMENT SAYS I AM LYING WHEN I AM NOT?

The polygraph simply records, on the computer, certain bodily reactions to the questions you are being asked. It is up to your Polygraph Examiner to interpret the information, and provide an educated opinion as to the data’s meaning.

 

WHAT IF THE INSTRUMENT MALFUNCTIONS?

When anything occurs that could affect a test, it would be obvious to the Polygraph Examiner and they would stop the examination. The Polygraph Examiner routinely checks all their instruments to verify that they are in proper functioning order

 

CAN I BE FORCED TO TAKE THE EXAMINATION?

No. The Polygraph Examination is voluntary. Your Polygraph Examiner requires the complete cooperation of the individual throughout the test. As a result it must be voluntary. If, for any reason, you don’t wish to take the examination you may decline.

 

HOW LONG DOES THE EXAMINATION TAKE?

Most examinations require at least two hours. Some may be longer or shorter, depending upon the issues involved.

 

IS THERE A CANCELLATION FEE ONCE I HAVE SCHEDULED A TEST?

Yes.  There is a $200 cancellation fee for tests canceled after booking in an appointment.  The entire cost of the test is forfeited if the test is canceled with less than 24 hours notice.  Similarily, there are no refunds if the test is missed.  Please be confident you are going to attend the test if you decide to schedule one.
