How could a Lie Detector help me?

I have trouble trusting my partner because I don’t think they are being honest.

Lie Detector Test

Recovering a relationship from a breakdown in trust is a struggle, taking years to rebuild. Once someone has shown they are capable of deceit, it can be hard to know when they are telling the truth, and can lead you to question your own judgement when you find yourself beginning to trust them again. This is a normal response to protect yourself from further harm, but can get in the way when you want to get your relationship back on track. If you have specific questions that need answering definitively, a lie detector test can help.

While it may seem drastic, a lie detector test can offer peace of mind to both parties. By agreeing to a lie detector test, a person shows they are willing to be questioned and to give honest answers or face the consequences. We will gather your questions and these will be asked by our licensed and accredited polygraph technicians at our testing facility. You will receive a report detailing the questions asked, the answers given and the measurements attributed to these answers. Whether your partner lies during the test or not, these results offer certainty and confidence in your next decisions.

I want to prove to my family that I didn’t do something of which I have been accused.

Lie Detector Test

When you are accused of something awful, your reputation suffers and your relationship with those closest to you can be deeply affected. Clearing your name can be difficult, especially in cases where evidence is hard to gather. While lie detector tests are often viewed as ways to catch people in their own dishonesty, they are just as often used to prove an individual to be trustworthy. By asking specific questions around an event or action during a test, our trained technicians can monitor your physiological stress symptoms and create a report to show the honesty of your answers with a scientific method. If no answers are flagged as dishonest, your report will prove to your family that you are telling the truth about your actions.

We know something was stolen but we can’t prove who it was.

Lie Detector Test

In cases where you have multiple suspects and little evidence, it can be hard to see beyond hearsay and blame to find the truth of the matter. A lie detector test, while often relegated to the realms of spy movies, provides an objective, scientific method of uncovering dishonesty.

In a case like this, our practitioners would ask questions around the details of the theft, such as asking how much money was taken or how they opened the safe. This would enable them to observe whether or not the subject exhibits stress symptoms when asked about details only the thief would know. It might be that a practiced thief is also a practiced liar, so it is important to ask questions from multiple angles to see if their answers change or a particular formulation gives them away.

We would provide a report for each test, detailing the questions asked and answers given, and any answers flagged as causing high levels of stress to the subject, indicating a lie. These reports can give you the confidence to begin a criminal case or employment tribunal.

The Family Thief

We were contacted a woman who was determined to find out who had stolen from her house, the difficulty was that all of the suspects were family. She had lost contact with her grandchildren almost entirely as there had been numerous occasions of petty theft but on this occasion jewellery including a number of pieces of asian gold and a high value watch had gone missing. The police were called but due to lack of forensic evidence they were unable to pursue the case leaving her with no way of proving her suspicions were correct, she decided a lie detector test was the only option.  

Did my husband have an affair?

When a husband with a checkered past came home from work late, his wife questioned him and was told he had been working late.

He claimed he was innocent and agreed to take a polygraph test but what did the results show?

Corporate Services FAQ

A polygraph test is a physical exam that records several physiological indicators such as blood pressure, pulse, respiration, and skin conductivity in order to ascertain whether somebody is telling the truth.

A series of questions are asked and the changes to these physiological factors are recorded directly on to the polygraph charts in order that they can be reviewed. Some of the changes that occur may replicate those that have been linked with truth or deception for many years.

The Polygraph charts are generated by attaching four components to the subject.

No, there is no scientific proof to prove that polygraph tests are 100% accurate. The accuracy of lie detector tests is a controversial issue however it is widely regarded as a highly accurate method.

Although Polygraph Tests are only administered to willing participants, many still wish to give the perception they are telling the truth whilst continuing to be deceitful to the examiner.

 

There are a wide variety of techniques that people believe will enable them to cheat on a polygraph test however our examiners are experienced enough to identify these and react accordingly.
