Specific Incident Polygraph Testing

Polygraph examinations can play a very useful role in investigating a wide variety of specific incidences. As an investigative tool it is capable in providing information to the company, persons or investigators regarding the incident that in certain cases is simply not possible through any other means. Most agencies have found that the polygraph can be used most effectively to limit the number of suspects. The results can normally indicate which person/s was involved in the investigated matter, and in some instances admissions of guilt are obtained during or after a polygraph examination.



Pre-Employment Polygraph Testing

A pre-employment polygraph examination is an examination administered to prospective employees to collect and verify information that the prospective employer can use to assist them in making the right decisions with regards to the employment of a new person. These examinations can provide better insight into the prospective employee and warn of any risks that the potential employee poses to the company. How well do you really know the person that you are about to welcome into your business-home?

Continuous Polygraph Screening Tests

Unlike the specific incident polygraph examinations the continuous screening examinations are designed to monitor for potential criminal and unethical activities that could be detrimental to a company. It is an essential tool for any potential risk positions held within companies and has been implemented with great success at the leading financial institutions, security companies, mining operations and many more. The examinations are designed based on -  and implemented to cater for the specific individual circumstances in which the employees operate to not only monitor for occurring criminal or illegal activities, but also to act as a deterrent for such activities.

As there can be limited avenues available to determine the veracity of these statements, polygraph examinations can provide an alternative course affording the opportunity of all parties involved in having the truthfulness of their statements scrutinized by an independent test.
