Polygraph tests are designed to solicit disclosures, deter bad acts, and help determine causes and involvement in problem behaviors or unacceptable activities. Here, we list the most common types of tests we administer.
Couples often rely on us to resolve infidelity, pornography, gambling, theft and other issues causing distrust in their relationship. A polygraph test is an inexpensive and quick solution to what a private investigator will often take weeks to resolve at considerable expense. We regularly administer infidelity examinations with accurate results, at a reasonable cost. We offer confidential individual and paired testing to resolve specific issues that arise within relationships.
Workplace crimes are the second leading cause of business failure in the United States. If you suspect embezzlement among your workers or cannot pinpoint a cause of business losses, please call us for a free analysis of your business issues. We resolve internal theft issues quickly and have an extensive background in loss prevention and corporate security. Polygraph testing internal theft issues requires specific compliance to the Employee Polygraph Protection Act. This is a specialized area that we have years of experience administering.
Addressing a sexual assault allegation has become common place within relationships, families, and workplace environments. The "Me Too" movement and high profile cases that have become front page news, from Hollywood to Washington D.C., have placed demands on forensic verification. Whether you are a sex assault victim, witness, or being accused, the polygraph test can help verify your claims. Trust your testing with us. Confidential, thorough, and experienced confirmation testing in a professional environment.
We conduct polygraph testing of individuals accused of sex offenses as well as confirming victim accounts and statements. We are often told what a life changing event it is when someone's accusations are confirmed with our polygraph testing, even many years later. If you or someone you know have been subjected to child abuse and would like this confirmed, please call us for an appointment.
Child neglect is a type of maltreatment related to failure in providing needed, age-appropriate care. Unlike physical and sexual abuse, neglect is usually typified by an ongoing pattern of inadequate care and is readily observed by individuals in close contact with the child. School personnel often notice indicators of child neglect such as poor hygiene, poor weight control, inadequate medical care, or frequent absences from school. Professionals have defined four types of neglect: physical, emotional, educational, and medical. Unchecked, neglect will often lead to a lifetime of emotional issues, sociopathic and dis-associative behaviors.
Child sexual abuse refers to any sexual contact with a child or teen. It includes many different acts. Some of these are touching the vagina, penis, or anus of a child; having a child touch the abuser’s vagina, penis, or anus; putting an object, penis, or finger into the vagina or anus of a child; and showing a child pictures or movies of other people undressed or having sex. We have years of experience identifying those involved in child sex abuse cases.
Polygraph testing of children is legally permissible. We are able to accurately test any child, ages 12 through 17 years, with parental permission. A 12 year old child may be tested if their “Mean Age Equivalency,” or SAS score, is at least 12 years of age and they have an IQ of 55 or above.
Assisted living center abuse has become a hidden epidemic that is rarely identified. Placing a loved one in such an environment during their final years can come with the devastating discovery that abuse and neglect has occurred. We have been contracted by major assisted living organizations to investigate their employees via forensic interviewing and polygraph testing. If you have evidence of patient abuse occurring within your organization, we can help before it becomes a catastrophic issue involving a regulatory action, lawsuit, media, or law enforcement intervention.
Exploitation of the elderly comes in many forms. Financial, sexual, physical, deprivational, emotional, nutritional, and psychological abuse cases are a regular headline across the United States. More often than not, family members are the cause or they simply ignore the symptoms. If you notice inadequately explained wounds, dehydration, malnutrition, hygiene issues, fear of speaking in the presence of a caretaker, excessive medication, unusual confinement, missing assets, shame, fear, or embarrassment, you should seek assistance immediately. We offer polygraph and investigation services to assisted living centers to help identify elder abuse.
A common reason that medical professionals may be tempted to abuse substances, such as Oxycodone or Fentanyl, is due to the easy access they have to powerful prescription medications that aren’t properly accounted for as they are administered. Along with their unpredictable and exhausting work hours, medical professionals are required to make spur-of-the-moment decisions regarding their patients’ health and well being. If they feel responsible for a certain outcome, or come to regret a choice that was made, this can greatly affect their emotions and mental state, leading to substance abuse. These behaviors are easily discovered with the polygraph test.
Teenagers can often cause overwhelming stress and chaos in the household. We test for illegal drug use and trafficking, alcohol consumption, theft, molestation, sabotage, vandalism, shoplifting, pornography, and other issues. If you suspect your teenager is committing offenses, call for an appointment before this behavior leads to considerable expense, severe injury, and/or legal actions.
Studies have shown that violent and aggressive criminals are more likely to have abused animals as children than those who are considered non-aggressive. Many serial murderers began their violent behavior by abusing animals. The FBI uses reports of animal abuse when gauging the threat potential of suspected and known criminals. The American Psychiatric Association identifies animal abuse as one of the diagnostic criterias for conduct disorders.
We have tested teenagers and others for intentionally poisoning family members with toxins such as antifreeze, Borax, prescription medication, as well as other household items. This is usually discovered after someone has been hospitalized and a physician has reported traces of poison in the victim, sometimes postmortem when it's too late. If you suspect intentional contamination is occurring in your home or business, we encourage you to call us for a consultation.
Fishing contests often involve large purse awards and will tempt anglers to not play by the rules. We test winning anglers to make sure they won the tournament in a sporting manner and did not cheat to gain unfair advantages. We have conducted testing for American Bass and Bass Pro US. We will travel to your location for polygraph testing.
Performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) have the ability, or potential, to drastically alter the human body and its biological functions, including the ability to considerably improve athletic performance. In certain instances, these drugs can be extremely dangerous, and in some situations, deadly. Drug screens that are initiated just prior to a competition will identify recent use; however, long term undetected use can be discovered with the polygraph test. We test winning athletes for illegal historical substance abuse, including anabolic steroids, stimulants, human growth hormone, and diuretics.
Witness testimony is considered by far the most unreliable form of evidence in any court, as compared to forensic discovery. Judges and attorneys know this as fact. Juries are easily swayed by emotional statements and other factors when someone testifies. Countless wrongful convictions have resulted from false testimonies. We test for inconsistencies and fabricated statements made by witnesses. Verification is especially critical in homicide and rape cases. We offer a variety of polygraph tests to determine veracity of truth when confirmation of a witness statement is critical.
Family court judges are often tasked with determining fault and cause of child abuse, neglect, and endangerment. This is especially difficult when the victim is too young to testify or be interviewed by a child psychologist. Admission of polygraph is relaxed in many family court jurisdictions and judges will allow examinations of those with access to the child victim. We have administered many exams for jurists to help eliminate and identify those who have had access to, and victimized, a child.
Child Protective Services (CPS) are tasked with investigating child abuse and neglect cases. We have administered tests for CPS units and family court judges. Some victims are too young to speak for themselves and often the child's entire family will come under scrutiny for child abuse. The polygraph test is especially effective in resolving these types of situations.
Incarcerating children is a heartbreaking reality for our justice system. A locked up child feels embarrassment, fear, shame, and abandonment. Often misrepresented and left to the system to determine their fate, children are vulnerable to injustice. We conduct pre-sentencing polygraph testing for Juvenile Parole and Probation agencies to determine a child's level of involvement in any crime. False confessions are common and often lead to undeserved sentences. Don't let your child become a statistic for something he or she did not do. We offer a variety of testing solutions for family court issues.
