Who Uses The Polygraph Science Center Services?
Polygraph examination is one of the many tools used by:
Legal Community: US. Attorney Offices, District Attorney Offices, Public Defender Offices, Defense Attorneys, Parole and Probation Departments make effective use of the polygraph system. Many pretrial decisions are made, based on a polygraph examination, in cases that lack substantial physical or eye witness evidence.
Litigation: Lawyers seeking to support a client’s position may seek to verify a statement.
Law Enforcement Agencies: Federal Law Enforcement Agencies, State Law Enforcement Agencies, and Local Law Enforcement Agencies such as Police and Sheriff’s Departments use polygraph examinations to support their investigation effort. Government agencies make extensive use of pre-employment polygraph examinations to support a background examination.
Private Sector: Companies and Corporations under the restrictions and limitations of the Employee Polygraph Protection Act of 1988 (EPPA) may look to the Act’s “Ongoing Investigations” exceptions to address issues of economic loss. Certain industries may use polygraph for pre-employment testing.
Psychologists: Treatment providers seeking assistance to determine if a person in counseling is being truthful or deceitful about their behavior thus helping patients break through denial. In cases where an individual may suspect infidelity by a mate or inappropriate behavior by a child in the family, we refer them to counselors as a first step. We are open to assisting counselors in the treatment process but not in a confrontation fashion.
