    In the state of Connecticut, it is a POST regulation that every applicant must be subject to a polygraph examination. There is also a standard polygraph questionnaire that every department must use, to the best of my knowledge. The polygraph is nothing to be feared as long as you are being truthful.

    The decision to use, or not use a Polygraph is that of the individual agency. Most departments opt to use the Polygraph in the applicant screening process. Keep in mind that the Polygraph is an investigative tool. It is far from infallable, it is not an oracle. From time to time unfit applicants slip through the cracks. This is true whether or not a Polygraph is used in the process.

    I am not planning on lying on my PHS but i was just curious to see what they would do. It seems like some people could slip through the process if they hid their stuff well enough...

    Polygraph Question

    I have been doing research on some of the local PDs hiring processes. Some use a polygraph and others dont. Why do some departments elect to not use a polygraph in their hiring process? Do they just do a more thourough background investigation? Thanks for the answers, I am curious to see why.
