The County Wide Group’s Lead Examiner adheres to the strict standards and methods as approved and accepted by the American Polygraph Association and the U.S. Federal Government. A typical polygraph examination is divided into three parts: a pre-test, the actual polygraph test, and a post-test data analysis phase. In the pre-test, the examiner completes required paperwork and talks with the examinee about the polygraph test. During this period, the examiner will discuss all the questions to be asked and familiarize the examinee with the entire testing procedure, process and equipment. During the actual-test, the examiner will administer and collect a number of digital polygraph charts. Following the actual polygraph test, the examiner will analyze the charts and render an opinion as to the truthfulness of the person taking the test and issue an official report with the results. Due to established laws and blood pressure cuff time limits, there is a strict limit of pertinent test questions that may be requested by the client for each polygraph examination (all other questions on the polygraph test are generic in nature and are established by the examiner for baseline purposes). The pertinent test questions are usually established before the actual polygraph examination.
