What is a Polygraph?
A Polygraph (commonly known as a lie detector) is an instrument that measures the physiological reactions in the body of a person under examination, seeking to determine whether the person is telling the truth.
What is the process of the Polygraph Examination?
The examination will take place in several phases. Initially the Polygraph Examiner will conduct an interview and test for suitability of the applicant. An initial test exam will be conducted followed by a sequence of exams. The charts are then numerically scored by the Examiner who will then provide a result.
Can a Polygraph tell me if my partner has cheated?
Yes. The Polygraph examination is commonly used for this purpose.
How long does the Polygraph Examination take?
Depending on your requirements, the examination process will take approximately 1.5 – 3 hours.
Is the Polygraph right for me?
The Polygraph can provide you answers to past behaviors, it is not used for a method of thought process or future behavior of a person.
Does the person under examination have to provide consent?
Yes. The examination is voluntary and a signed consent is required prior to commencement of the examination.
I have heard you can beat the Polygraph, is this true?
No. The Polygraph is merely an instrument that records physiological changes in the body, it is the Polygraph Examiner who interprets these results. A certified Polygraph Examiner observes all behavior and responses and can very easily detect if an applicant is attempting any manipulation.
How many questions can be asked in the Exam?
A Polygraph Examination specifically answers one type of question, multiple issues are not asked on the one examination. This is a general misconception of the use of the Polygraph. Please speak with your Polygraph Examiner who will formulate the questions to best suit your requirements.
How Accurate is the Polygraph?
The Polygraph has undergone years of scientific studies and now show results of 90-95% accuracy. Our certified Polygraph Examiners utilise the latest scientific based techniques and instruments to ensure these results are produced.
If I am nervous, will that affect the Polygraph?
No. We expect a level of nervousness during the examination, this is completely normal. As the Polygraph records changes in physiological reactions, the Polygraph Examiner can determine the results above the level of nervousness in the body. A number of different reactions are measured including, heart rate, breathing patterns, sweat gland activity (also known as galvanic skin conductivity).
Is the Polygraph Examiner certified?
Yes. Our Polygraph Examiner has been trained with an APA Accredited Polygraph Academy, completing the certification in the United States of America. Our Examiner was formerly a NSW Police officer, serving over 12 years in the Force.
