Polygraph testing has proven to be a powerful and reliable scientific tool for many decades now. It is an effective means for either verifying truthfulness or detecting deceit in a wide variety of situations, whether this is a private matter, employment issue or for legal purposes. Polygraph testing is often used to either confirm or exonerate a person’s involvement in any suspect activity or wrongdoing and is of great assistance in the absence of other corroborative evidence (i.e. one person’s word against another). When you are wrongly accused a polygraph test can help you clear your name.
The polygraph is widely used throughout the world particularly in the United States, Canada, Australia, and many European countries. National security agencies and the majority of U.S police departments use the polygraph for law enforcement pre-employment or preclearance screening. Security sensitive professions screen existing employees who hold sensitive positions to ensure security. The polygraph is also used in investigations of specific events, such as criminal cases. The use of the polygraph is being used with increasing frequency in the U.K and has been introduced in the supervision and management of post conviction sex offenders. Hopefully this will lead the way to the introduction of sex offender testing in Ireland in the not too distant future.
Polygraph evidence can be used in courts in the ROI, it is also an extremely valuable aid during pre-trial investigation and preparation, substantially reducing investigative costs and saving resources by narrowing the focus of inquiry and providing further investigative leads, allowing investigators to either quickly exonerate or implicate suspects or witnesses.

Some businesses such as those who operate in high risk sectors or security firms request to have the information furnished by an applicant verified by the polygraph as part of the final selection process to identify applicants who are for example hiding criminality or undesirable activities which would make them unsuitable candidates.
When used as part of the investigative process, the polygraph helps to either exonerate or implicate suspects or witnesses, significantly reducing costs for both investigators and companies. Helping to reduce the number of false and fraudulent claims being paid by Insurers.
