Pre-employment polygraph testing in government, city, county, state, Federal and security related positions is essential. A potential government job applicant may ultimately be carrying a gun, a badge and hold our lives and civil liberties in their hands. These are positions with serious consequences. We at Allied Polygraph Services, LLC are proud to bring over 26 years of law enforcement experience to the table.
Over the years, the mistakes we see made in pre-employment polygraph tests are in situations where examiners cut corners, lack of attention to details and not spending the proper amount of time with an applicant. Testing day after day can become a humdrum routine. Without an examiner’s full attention, it is easy to make careless mistakes which can result in less accurate polygraph findings. Some examiner’s priorities are just performing the process. Allied Polygraph Services, LLC, priorities are getting useful results from the testing process.
Pre-employment tests are difficult because they involve looking at many facets of a person’s background. These tests, when properly done, require 2.5 to 3.5 hours of “eyeball to eyeball” discussion and testing to uncover the more unsavory details of an applicant’s past. The four main areas tested, are illegal drug involvement, thefts, major crimes, domestic issues. Of course, a multitude of other issues are covered (down load screening booklet here Polygraph Screening Booklet revised 10-10-14 ) in an applicants background besides the areas tested and follow ups are done in areas of concern.
Reports are then written of the findings which are categorized as either significant reactions, no significant reactions, or inconclusive. The report will including all pertinent admissions made by applicant. The entire process is audio/video recorded and can be made available to the involved agency. We are proud to be the firewall between questionable applicants and powerful employment positions.
