      Begs the question, though. Does River City PD use polygraph examinations as part of their screening process? If so, I'd love to see samples of their relevant questions.

        Word on the street is they use a vertical object in the seat, rather than a pad.

      #1) Do you start, then abandon, nonsensical threads on LEO forums?

        Or you could just not post things like this train wreck.

      What is the point of this thread? Anyone who has been in LE long knows that polygraphs are a unreliable technique, with results being highly dependent on the examiner.

      Taking your post at face value, I don't see the problem with people complaining about their negative poly experiences in specific hiring threads. You can easily pass a poly at one agency and fail at another such as CBP. There doesn't need to be one megathread about polys. Or a thread for people who think the polygraph is infallible.

          I’ve taken both, and found the CVSA to be much less stressful,…just being hooked up to the Poly is stress inducing!

          Seriously, I’d like to read your thesis.

          I actually wasn't phased by the poly at all. I know it's fake science, but I was either going to pass it or not, and there was nothing I could do to influence it. Besides, the poly person can't see inside my head, so I just put all doubts out of my mind and moved through it.

          I honestly think it's a great investigative tool for the criminal element who is truly ignorant of how it works.

          The only thing that bothers me about the device is how it's heavily based on a tiered scoring system for pre-employment. If no confessions are made, the merit of its score is the sole factor of dismissing an applicant. With the percentage rate of "failures" increasing, I can't help but wonder if agencies are truly missing out on great candidates and allowing sub-par ones through. Because typically, this phase of the process is before the in-depth field background investigations.

          I've passed a few and failed a few where the questions were the exact same. It has its place within the realm of criminal investigations, but when it comes to pre-employment, I can't help but consider it a form of fraud, waste, and abuse or an unethical practice of eliminating candidates based on needs beyond someone's skill.

          Just my .02.

          IroqouisB, The tool works if you have information that was developed on a candidate before hand. Given backgrounds occur after that more than likely doesn't happen. It still boils down to the examiner. Some examiners are very capable, others are absolute idiots and couldn't interview their way out of a cardboard box. The latter is especially evident when someone gets asked the fan favorite "how many times have you beaten your wife?" and the person sitting in the chair has never had a spouse.

        Man. I can’t believe some of you are going to be 1811s.
