Secure Polygraph Solutions is dedicated to the truth and uses polygraph testing also known as lie detector techniques in finding truthful answers. While the subject is being interrogated and answers a series of unique questions, the polygraph measures and records several physiological keys, such as relative changes in blood volume, thoracic and abdominal breathing patterns as well as skin conductivity.
Testing and reporting structures are streamlined, in place and strictly adhered to, to ensure confidentiality and respect, as well as professionalism at all times. The American Polygraph Association (APA) believes that scientific evidence supports the validity of polygraph examinations that are conducted and interpreted in compliance with documented and validated procedures. Therefore, such examinations have great probative value and utility for a variety of uses.
