    The Length of the exam is contingent on your history. Mine was 4.5 hrs. Thats with no military, or previous law enforcement booklet items. If you were in the military or a LEA, it may be longer.

      I don't have LEO or Military experience so mine might go quicker. I reached out to my trooper friend they said 1.5 hrs for theirs just for the test not including time there.

      Yeah it definitely seems like it is a pretty thorough process for the poly.

      Does anyone know what would disqualify you in the polygraph? I don't plan on lying at all but if something is going to disqualify me why waste my time.

        Its literally a roll of the dice. Fact is, you can be cream of the crop and still fail. But, doesnt hurt to try for such a great agency.

          I see, thanks for your help. I’ve only done a couple things that I think a lot of other people have done as well, so hopefully I’ll be okay.

            I would try not to sweat it to much. Like everyone says be honest. I mean everyone has done something during early ages of life. The only thing I might worry about is if it’s something that happened within the last year to three years. I’m not talking 5 mph over speeding ticket lol. Like dui, and bigger things like that. But if everything was many years ago and you been ok for 5 years I would think you would be ok. But I’m no expert. Just tell them the truth so you don’t have to keep saying things that do not make sense. Keep answers simple. Yes and no. don’t try to beat it also. Just try and be yourself, like your talking to a family member or best friend. You waited this long I wouldn’t give up just because you think you might not make it. Maybe talk to a recruiter if it’s something your really concerned about, they might be able to give you a better idea.

              I can't believe how quickly we got our final rankings back! This is my first time through so I was expecting June. Got 1* for my rank haven't had an examiner reach out yet. It's my first rodeo with PSP but not in the LE hiring process. In my experience with taking polygraph tests, I agree with Tink1989, when it comes down to it just tell the truth. Unless you've murdered someone or are involved with child pornography, in which case probably should be looking for a different career path anyway. DO NOT try counter measures, these guys use the polygraph as a tool but can totally tell if you're being deceptive without it. The point is not to find things to disqualify you for, it's to see if given the choice to be truthful or deceptive possibly at the expense of your reputation that you will choose to be truthful. Which can't be over emphasized with the scrutiny LE has come under.

                I talked to a guy who was disqualified before the poly last cycle and he said it was for past drug use. He is only 22 or 23 so it could be more recent. All of my dirt is 15+ years ago and my PSP friends said just to tell the truth. I’m ranked 4* and still have not received a call from the agency. I wish everyone here luck!

                    Just an FYI.... I was at the academy for the 6013 Psych test, and it sounds like the first 6014 wave will enter the academy in November. People in my group had to take a medical waiver, and their entry was bumped to November.

                        But they also have to include some people that are already processed from the 6013 cycle. So the first class won't just be people from the 6014 cycle

                        Either way, we've waited this long, whats another 3 months if you dont make the November class. As long as you have nothing to hide on the poly and remain calm and truthful, we should be fine. A lot of the stuff you get DQd for has a time period on it, so if you've been staying out of trouble recently, you should be fine.
