Post-Conviction Sex Offender Testing (PCSOT)

Central Polygraph Service examiners understand the unique variables required to conduct Pre- and Post-Conviction Sex Offender Testing (PCSOT). All Central Polygraph Service examiners are licensed with the State of Illinois, have graduated from an American Polygraph Association approved advanced Post-Conviction Sex Offender training course and are approved by the Illinois Attorney General as qualified examiners for Post-Conviction Sex Offender Testing. All Central Polygraph Service examiners participate in specialized PCSOT continuing education programs on an annual basis.

Central Polygraph Service has developed a proprietary detailed information booklet that each examinee must complete for specific sex offenses, sexual history disclosures, maintenance and monitoring examinations. Detailed and customized official reports are usually available within 24 hours following the interview and polygraph examination.

Strict confidentiality is always maintained, ensuring complete privacy for the examinee. These reports can be forwarded to either the attending therapist or managing officer.

Central Polygraph Service utilizes state-of-the-art digital polygraph systems and conducts polygraph examinations according to strict standards and methods as approved and accepted by the American Polygraph Association and the U.S. Federal Government. Due to established laws, there is a strict limit of up to (4) pertinent test questions that may be established 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). Although each polygraph examination is always customized per the therapist, managing officer or client’s needs, following is a sample list of just some of the types of approved pertinent test questions that are frequently used for Post-Conviction Sex Offender type polygraph examinations:
