Sometimes in life we don’t get to choose our battles. Sometimes they are just thrust upon us for unforeseen reasons. There are several different means to resolve these battles or differences. Over the years the Polygraph has been instrumental in helping people resolve these differences. Having been in law enforcement it can sometimes be extremely difficult to decide how to pursue the right direction and resolve the issue at hand. Which side is telling the truth and which is not. I wish I had my crystal ball (The Polygraph) with me in the field to help me decide. Well now I do and so do so many other individuals have used this resource to help them.
Regardless of the circumstnaces sourrounding your individual situation it is essential that you understand that the Polygraph is only as good as the examiner running the test. You must ensure that the examiner has completed the porper schooling from an American Polygraph Association School. Many Examiners in the field consider the Marston School of Lie Detection the Best Polygraph School on the West Coast today. Examiners must have in turn completed their laboratory, academic, and field requirements to receive their Certification.
Unfortunately, in the State of California there is no license board to oversee the industy. Which means anyone can purchase a Polygraph Instrument and begin conducting tests. It is essential that you not fall into this con, you and your family should mean more than just saving a few dollars. That is what most uncertified examiners will do to lure in their business. BEWARE! YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. The more qualified examiners are all pretty reasonable.
Make sure that the examiner is a certified member of one of the following: California Association of Polygraph Examiners (CAPE) www.Californiapolygraph.org, American Polygraph Association (APA) www.Polygraph.org, American Association Police Polygraphists (AAPP) www.Policepolygraph.org, or The National Polygraph Association (NPA). This will help you ensure that the examiner that you choose is up to date on the techniques, Equipment, and Training.
Ensure that the examiner is either using a Lafeyette, Limestone, or Axicton instrument. These instruments are the only accepted Manufacturers of Computerized Polygraphs.
Every individual case deserves to have the poper techniques, equipment, and training available to the examiner to overcome the many obstacles that are used to preserve the integrity of the test Any variations, and the validity of the test as well as any findings from the test will be diminished. The subject is the one that loses.
