    What they're looking for....honesty. If you lie, they'll know and you won't get hired. The polygraph is the most nerve-racking thing experienced in the hiring process, but if you're honest about everything you'll do fine.

    My department handed me a packet with a couple hundred questions and I had to answer: "Yes", "No", or "Speak to Detective." In the end the polygraph was only 10 questions, 3 of which are control questions.

    Why are you concered about the sex questions? They aren't meant to be perverted, they're meant to see if the person has broken any sex laws. Examples of my "sex" questions:

    1. Have you ever had sex with animals?
    2. Have you ever had sex with a minor?
    3. Have you ever seen child porn?
    4. Have you ever raped someone?

    See not so bad.

      I was just concerned because Im not too familiar with that yet. I thought it was more based on what you as a person have experienced with the other partner.

        Don't ask around too much about the polygraph because it'll get you in trouble. They might think you were looking around on ways to lie and still pass.

            Well how do they take the sex with a minor question. What if you had relations with a girl when you both were underage? (Me-16, her-15) Would that affect it?
            "It's not a lie Officer,
            It's a creative recollection."

              No, because you'd explain it to the detective. The question would be rephrased with the qualifier, "Other than what you have told me..."

                I'm curious as to the child porn situation. I've looked at internet porn video's before by DL them and sometimes the title isn't always what the video is, and there have been times where I've clicked to watch a video and it has been child porn. Obviously I didn't continue to watch it but I am curious as to their reaction?

                  Like I said, they're not going to care, as long as it wasn't "Accidentally" 50 times. Just make sure you tell them, so you don't react on the poly.

                  With all the stuff on the internet, you're bound to run into some of the crap eventually.

                    The whole point of the "Poly" during the hiring process is to see how consistant you are with your answers and your original application. Don't over think it....you'll just stress yourself out and fail.

                      Gotcha, I think it's pretty messed up so theres no way in hell I'd be intentionally watching it.

                          Oh believe me, I don't need a book to tell me how sick people our in this world. I may look into that, though

                            Check this site out

                            This site, while obviously biased perhaps, provides a decent overview of the poly process and a good guide aka "The Lie Behind the Lie Detector Test" found at http://antipolygraph.org/pubs.shtml.
                            The resources on the site are interesting. Anyone considering a career in LE or who is facing a poly should at least review the materials.
