Criminal Wrong Doing
Unforeseen personal or professional situations sometimes give rise to allegations of theft, illegal or unwanted sexual contact, assault and battery, child abuse or other accusations that are sometimes motivated by jealousy, retaliation or revenge. If the allegations are without merit, it is imperative for the accused to provide proof of their innocence to law enforcement authorities. We can assist defense attorneys with these cases by conducting a polygraph examination to isolate the pertinent issues and determine the truth about any particular matter.
Police Officers or public officials are sometimes subjected to allegations of misusing their authority, or of violating rules, regulations or standards of conduct. Internal investigations of frivolous or unsubstantiated allegations can sometimes lead to embarrassing disclosure of information that would otherwise remain confidential. Having your attorney contract with us for your polygraph examination would ensure that any personal information revealed would be legally protected by the attorney-client privilege.
Infidelity concerns are frequently the subject of polygraph testing to determine whether a spouse or loved one has been faithful to a relationship or marriage. We will work with you to ensure that all of your areas of concern are covered during the examination and that all of your questions are answered to your satisfaction. The truth that results from a polygraph will give you peace of mind and allow you restore your relationship or make alternate plans with confidence.
Examinations are conducted for corporate or small business pre-employment screening and internal theft, under the requirements set forth in the Employee Polygraph Protection Act. All the necessary steps are followed to comply fully with the law and to provide employers with the confidence they need to take appropriate personnel actions or loss prevention measures.

Fishing tournaments and other professional competitions frequently require contestants to submit to a polygraph examination for the purposes of ensuring compliance with the rules of the game. In the interest of timeliness, we are able to field multiple examiners so that multiple tests can be conducted and so that the winners can claim their winnings quickly. Polygraph testing also allows contestants and sponsors to rest assured that the competition was won fairly.
