Often in the UK, a person’s only experience of lie detector testing is the Jeremy Kyle TV show which was an unfair and unethical representation of how a polygraph test should be undertaken and was largely inaccurate.

If you are an employer or run a business, lie detector testing can assist in ensuring that you employ the right applicant for a sensitive or high responsibility role in your company or can help where fraud or misconduct has occurred, and you need to identify the perpetrator to prevent further risk or harm to your business.

Scientific research and study have determined that the human body presents with certain physiological changes when it perceives threat or is under stress and these changes occur within the heart rate, blood pressure, skin temperature, and perspiration rate.
Polygraph tests work through the fear a person feels when they perceive that their deception may be uncovered; if they are acting in a deceitful manner their bodily responses will indicate this.
Sensors are attached to the body of the subject and a series of carefully formulated questions are posed during which the sensors record the bodily changes exhibited by the subject and the polygraph software coverts this data into visual format.
The polygraph examiner can then measure and score this data and arrive at a conclusion of whether or not there is evidence of deception or not and, therefore, ascertain if a person is being truthful or dishonest in the responses to the questions that they have provided.
There are several stages to a polygraph examination; this starts with a phone call from the examiner to obtain the basic details of the issue behind your request for a test and to gather information about the subject such as physical and mental health and any medication, illicit drug, or alcohol use.
On the day of the test it is important that you try to abstain from any illicit substance or alcohol use, and it is recommended that you limit caffeine intake and try to avoid energy type drinks.
The test appointment itself will commence with a pre-test interview where the examiner will obtain background information about the subject, their views and narrative regarding the pertinent issue or event and will talk through the questions that will be used and ensure that these are appropriate and understood.
The sensors will be attached to the subject’s torso, hand, and arm over light clothing such as a t-shirt and a calibration or acquaintance exercise will be undertaken to ensure that the instrumentation is functioning correctly and to enable the examiner an understanding of how the individual responds when behaving in a deceitful manner.
The test will then be carried out and will involve 3 sets of 11 questions, 3 of which will specifically address the matter at the heart of the test request, and the subject will be asked to sit still and follow all instructions given and provide yes or no answers to the questions posed.
Following completion of the test it may be possible to provide verbal results straight away or data may require deeper analysis dependent on the extremity or subtlety of individual response and any complexity that may be present.
You will always receive your results and a full written report within 48 hours of your test, and this will be emailed to you so its important to ensure that you have an active email account that you are able to access and use and these can be quickly and easily arranged online within minutes if you don’t already have one in place.
The processes and measures that achieve accurate and reliable lie detector test results have been designed to be carried out in person and the physical presence of the examiner with the subject during testing is an essential element of the procedure.
There is no evidence, research, or study to support the accuracy or validity of online or remote lie detector testing and results obtained by these methods have no standing or verification of accuracy.
Bond Rees only provide physical in person polygraph examination as this is the only method that has been researched, tested, and evidenced to achieve valid results.
Lie detector testing is used worldwide within legal processes, criminal investigation, insurance investigation, prisoner and probation monitoring, and employment procedures and is a highly respected and recognised method of deception detection.
The American Polygraph Association is a leading global authority on the use of lie detector testing and reports this method to achieve 85% to 95% accuracy.
Bond Rees’s polygraph examiner utilises a control question Utah model for testing and scoring which has undergone rigorous research and found to provide 90% accuracy.
Our polygraph examiner is fully trained and qualified and a highly appropriate and committed examiner having completed training with the European Polygraph Academy and being a member of the European Polygraph Association and holding a BSc (hons) Psychology degree and Post Graduate Diploma.
Can someone trick a lie detector test?
There are many “helpful” articles on the internet providing tips on how to cheat a lie detector test, but these underestimate the complexity of polygraph testing and the knowledge and awareness of the examiner.
Polygraph examination has been developed with full knowledge of the tricks and techniques people employ to try to manipulate data achieved and countermeasures have been included to mitigate this and any experienced examiner will be vigilant to attempts and will record this as non-cooperation which is usually presumed to indicate deception.
How long does a lie detector test take?
The length of time your test takes can vary depending on the complexity and nature of the issue at the heart of your test request and any adaptations that may be required.
It’s best to allow at least 2 hours for your test to ensure there is no pressure to rush or concern about timing as this can impact on your ability to focus and provide the best environment for accurate testing.
I take anxiety medication – can I still take a lie detector test?
Some medication and medical conditions can impact on physiological response so its important to make your examiner aware of the details of these but there is no reason that you cannot take a lie detector test and gain accurate results if you are using anxiety medications.
The important thing to consider is that lie detector testing can unavoidably provide a somewhat stressful and anxious experience so think about what is in your best interests and whether or not such an activity is likely to be harmful to your wellbeing before making the decision to proceed – the examiner is not able to make specific medical recommendations, so this is up to you.
Can my partner watch the test?
It is not possible for any other person to be present during the pre-interview or test as this can influence response and accuracy of results achieved.
The examiner will be happy to have a brief chat with any other significant person at the test location prior to testing to address any issues or questions they have and gain their views and feelings but they will need to leave before the test process commences.
