LAW ENFORCEMENT PRE-EMPLOYMENT EXAMS
LAW ENFORCEMENT PRE-EMPLOYMENT POLYGRAPHS
Can you afford to have even one bad apple on your team?
Can you afford to waste time and money on a candidate who is willfully attempting to circumvent your department's screening process?
In today’s hiring atmosphere, it is imperative that law enforcement select only the best candidates for those positions which become available, and mistakes cannot afford to be made in selecting candidates who are actively attempting to subvert the process by concealing negative information about themselves. Sometimes this concealed information consisted of simple issues which may be embarrassing but are not disqualifying. At other times serious information such as undisclosed involvement with illegal drugs or other serious crimes is obtained during a pre-employment polygraph.
Law Enforcement Pre-employment Polygraphs (LEPETs)are typically
afforded to an applicant after he/she has been interviewed more than once,
usually by experienced officers and the Chief or Sheriff. And yet, day in and
day out polygraphs reveal information about which candidates were willing
to lie in the hope of achieving their goal of obtaining employment.
Mike completed more than one thousand applicant polygraph examinations while
working for the FBI, and has a proven knack for discovering information
which is critical to decision makers in law enforcement hiring.
POLYGRAPH SCREENING IN GOVERNMENTAL AGENCIES
The Employee Polygraph Protection Act of 1988 (EPPA) prohibits most private employers from using polygraph testing to screen applicants for employment, with notable exceptions which are discussed under the “Private Sector Companies” tab of this website. However, the EPPA permits polygraph tests to be administered to job applicants of federal, state, and local governmental agencies such as police departments, school systems, and correctional institutions.
