An in-depth proprietary behavioral history and background profile booklet specifically designed by Central Polygraph Service is completed by each applicant prior to the actual polygraph examination as part of our testing process. The entire process is conducted by state licensed and Certified Law Enforcement polygraph examiners trained in advanced interview and interrogation methods.
