    I wish you the best of luck buddy. I was lucky enough to get hired by a department that does use that witchcraft in the hiring process.

      I admitted with ease and he never asked the question again. He just focused on other questions on the test which was no problem, I was 100% honest.
      He told me we all done stupid things when we were younger, he admitted he wasn't perfect, but people mature. So hope the PD sees it that way!
      Just be aware if you say one thing one the application, (drug use) and then that statement "changes" on the polygraph, you could be taken out of the process. This is why the polygraph is in place, not to necessarily detect lies, but to garner admissions under "pressure".

          Typically when you write something down before the polygraph, and then change your answer during the actual exam itself, you fail because you lied. You changed your answer thus meaning you lied on the paperwork and signed off on it. It may not have been an arrest, but with boose, alcohol, drugs? Most would look at that and say you were lying for a reason to cover up something bigger. With those three categories, that is a big problem.

          When he makes his report, it will say you changed an answer. From what I've heard from others who have done this same thing, they will fail it.

            I was honest with the questionnaire before I was actually hooked up, and was honest through out, basically I forgot to mark yes on the app from the pd which the poly examiner did not have.

            My story that MIGHT happen is that he will write the report that I pass, but it'll be up to the commisioners reviewing all the paper work and see if they match my initial app. But like subzero said, I know I could possibly get eliminated for not marking it in the first place but if they don't See that mistake I will be going to the next step hopefully!
            For cpd, I definitely did not leave anything out!

              Also another piece of advice, for people applying to multiple departments. When you fill out your first PHS no matter who it is for, save it, make a copy or whatever. Be truthful, and fill out every follow on PHS with the same information, You would be amazed how often departments will talk to each other when they background you and check up on you with the other department and the info they have on you. You don't want any misconceptions right? Because at worse, you now have 2(or how ever many one department called to others) hiring processes affected by the info you provided. Just a small piece of advice, and it was free, I'll collect my two cents when you are hired.
