Government Lie Detector Test

When national security or public safety is at risk, a polygraph examination can offer reassurance or indicate the need for intervention.

Lie Detector Services

for Government Agencies

The examiners from Global Polygraph Solutions have been cleared to the highest level to manage the most sensitive intelligence confidentially for government agencies. All our examiners have been Government Developed Vetted, the most detailed and comprehensive form of security clearance in the UK government.

This is the calibre of integrity we offer to intelligence services that recognise the value of introducing lie detector examinations to enhance their vetting procedures.

Our polygraph examination methodology has proven itself in the assessment and management of risks and matters of national security.

We approach all our work in a discreet and totally confidential manner.

Areas that can benefit include:

Curbing Terrorism

Background screening of terrorists to determine their propensity to “re-engage” in extremist organisations or planning and execution of terrorist activities.

The experience obtained as a Counter Terrorism Detective Superintendent allows our founder and his team of examiners to fully assess the options available for mitigating various threats, and to formulate the most effective questions to explore these issues.

Criminal Cases

Examination of convicted criminals to establish if future criminal activities are likely or planned. Also to ascertain whether they have admitted full involvement in all historical activity.

In the event of an alleged miscarriage of justice in which an innocent party has been convicted, a lie detector test can formulate the most appropriate questions to determine the credibility of that person.

Enhanced Government Vetting:

The lie detector test is particularly valuable to enhance the vetting process for those who requesting access to the most privileged and secret material – reducing the risks of compromise.

Government organisations often receive “single strand” items of intelligence indicating that trusted individuals are at risk of compromise for a variety of reasons (such as addictive behaviour patterns or inappropriate relationships).

These circumstances often cause a challenging scenario for managers, particularly when the provenance of the intelligence could present risks to the source. This can lead to serious mistakes, such as the right individual not being selected for promotion, or the wrong person being given access to the most sensitive intelligence.

A professionally conducted polygraph examination provides a methodology for proportionately managing these risks. It gives individuals who pass a test, the opportunity to undertake the roles they deserved, and it does so in a professional manner.

If an individual fails a polygraph test, their line manager is in a position to make a better informed decision regarding the deployment of further resources to manage potential risks.

Polygraph test? Lie detector test? Which is correct?

The term “polygraph” means “many writings”. It’s named after the testing procedure: several physiological responses are measured at the same time to detect signs of deception. This discipline is called forensic psychophysiology.

The combination of “psychology” and “physiology” refers to the relationship of the mind and body;  the Polygraph Instrument measures physical responses to thoughts and emotions. (For this reason a polygraph examiner is also known as a forensic psychophysiologist.) A polygraph instrument  is used in performing lie detector tests, so both terms are used interchangeably.
