  • Cvsa...

    Well this is my first post on here.....I have been reading these forums for a while now....I just had my Oral Board Yesterday morning for the local PD and the LT called me about 3 hours after I left and said I did great an he scheduled my CVSA for tomorrow morning...has anyone in here taken it before??...If so how was it?...and suggestion would be greatly appreciated....and I know the obvious is to be truthful...but I was just curious to get different people's opinions and experiences with the CVSA.

    i recently took a polygraph and a VSA the next day. The difference was huge. The VSA was very easy. Not much pressure, just say yes and no into a microphone. On mine they asked 30 questions, 15 were about me and 15 were about objects in the room. He asked them in alternating order.

    Example:
    1. Is my shirt white?
    2. Are you hideing anything in reguards to your drug use?
    3. Is the light on in this room?
    4. Did you come here with the intent to lie?

    And so on.... Very smooth. We went over my background questionaire before hand. Good Luck!!

      Similar experience. I took and passed mine this week. We went over my background, talked for a long time, then took the test. She showed me the deception graphs on the control questions, where you are asked to lie on a few questions. I was honest with everything else, and contrary to what a lot of people say, it appears to actually sort of work in detecting stress in your voice... I am very comfortable with my background investigator, so maybe that helped out.

        the VSA is just as reliable as the polygraph. so basically neither work. lol... the VSA is easier because you're not strapped to a machine. all you do is speak into a mic, and supposedly a computer tells you if you're lying by the stress in your voice, which you can't manipulate.
