  • No detector for Sherrif

    I was just curiouse why the sheriif departments around my area do not require a lie detector test? Would being a deputy Sheriff be a good start into law enforcement?

    A. Poly's and CVSAs are not the cure all when it comes to backgrounds. A good investigator can find out a lot of info on their own by digging into a person's background based on the information they provided....then expand on it and get even more info...and find stuff that they maybe lying or being deceptive about.....and going from there....

    I know folks (like myself) that have been honest with a poly operator.....and were told we were being deceptive.......

    Just a heads up, there are a lot of Agengies (local/County/State/Federal) that do not use them and have quality Deputies, Officers, Troopers, Agents working for them.....

    B. They costs a lot of money to buy and then train an operator. A smaller agency may not use them all the time to be cost effective.....

    Ummmm....yeap.....good way to go and stay if you like what you are doing. I know lots of folks that have worked as Deputies for all their LE careers in MO.....and like it a lot.

      Could be pretty embarrassing applying for the job of Deputy Sherrif, or Deputy Sheriif, on a County job application. If you plan on becoming one, you may want to learn how to spell it right each time.

        Whether or not an agency uses a polygraph in Background Investigations is it's own decision. I agree with Bearcat that a thorough Background Investigation can be as effective as the use of a polygraph. My personal view concerning a polygraph is that it can be a useful investigative tool. Most Examiners make a substantial effort to be fair to the applicant. At the end of the day though, it's an individual department's call. All of which is to say, that quite a few Sheriff's Departments employ the polygraph in thier hiring process.

            So what evil crimes did you commit in your past????
            What are you afraid we will find out??

            So you can't answer a question without it being a lie??

              Truly Amazing

              Actually, I have already explained the minor things that I have done.... that happened about five years ago. Also, I will be starting the academy in the fall. what I find truly amazing is the smart remarks. If I wanted English correction I would have went to English.com. I was only curiouse why some make a big deal about the detectors in some areas. I appreciate all the HELPFUL advice.

                Even though some of the replies here have to do with your spelling, that doesn't make them any less helpful. As an Officer, Sherrif, Trooper whatever, you will have to write reports. Those reports will be read by Attorneys for both sides, Sergeants, Lieutenants and so on. It may not seem like much, but grammar does count when getting hired.

                  No offense....but when you are in the academy, you will be having classes that deal with report writing.....and they will be on your *** daily making sure you use proper grammar, good sentence structure, and proper spelling.

                  In my academy, we had a report writing project that was a pass/fail thing.....meaning if you didn't pass it....you failed the academy...... We worked on it for about a week solid.....and we damn near lost one idiot who screwed around and had to spend the day of the POST test fixing it so he could graduate that night......

                    Nixa,

                    Before that academy date arrives, I'm going to recommend you get yourself some thicker skin. With out it, your stay in the academy will be a miserable, if not short one

                    Good luck

                      I agree with excomptoncop, thicken up. If not your going to get chewed up in the academy, for a very short time.
                      Having said that, polygraphs are crap, they can't tell if your lying or not they can only tell if your nervous. Your poly guy will spent a lot of time before your test telling you how great he is on the machine, how you can't get away with anything, etc.. His goal is to get you nervous about being dishonest. It's all about your breathing, if you deep breath and relax you'll breeze right through it.
                      I will tell you this, if your intentions are to be deceptive, please stay in MO. We have enough problems in Ca.

                        I Apologize

                        I apologize for getting a little heated about the grammer correction. I am thankful for everyones response. Honestly, my grammer and personal history is not that bad and I have nothing to hide. I can spell much better than I can type. I now understand the importance of grammer and thicker skin. Thank you.

                            That is funny you said that.. They told us during our orientation that most people are dropped because they couldn’t spell "Deputy" or "Sheriff"...

                              I went through a Police Academy at 47 years of age, let me tell you this, you will be tested to the max in every way possible, they want to find your breaking point, you cannot have one and be a Police Officer, Deputy Sheriff, whatever, remember that and you will graduate. Good Luck.
