There are many situations where polygraph testing can be an invaluable asset. The polygraph has been successfully used as an effective tool for verifying truthfulness and lie detection for many years. Polygraph testing is widely used in Canada, USA, Israel, Africa, Japan, 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.

Furthermore, one area where the polygraph is used as a deterrent to future offending is in the supervision and management of post-conviction sex offenders. Sex offenders tend to be more deceptive than other criminal groups, polygraph testing ensures that treatment providers have the information necessary to implement an effective treatment program. Successful treatment programs prevent additional sexual offences and keep the community safe. Post-conviction sex offender testing is due to be introduced in England and Wales in 2014. Hopefully this will lead the way to the introduction of sex offender testing in Ireland in the not too distant future.

In most of these countries, the polygraph is not used in court proceedings, but is used as an effective tool to show deception in a person and further support corroborating evidence.
