Michael Jackson Documentary – Leaving Neverland
Did you watch the recent documentary on Michael Jackson, what do you think was he guilty? Is Wade Robson and James Safechuck now lying, I would personally love to offer either of them a lie detector test to get top the bottom of this controversy once and for all. What parent would allow any child to spend nights at anyone’s home sleeping in the same room as the person they are staying with, was Michael Jackson just a product of never having a childhood, was he really a sexual predator as the accusers now claim. Its hard for the viewer to cut through the conflicting evidence in the documentary to decide what really happened, this is where a lie detector would really help and get to the bottom of this once and for all. Many Michael Jackson fans have been asking for this as this recent newspapers article states The Sun Newspaper Article
Public interest tests like this we would offer our services for free as we have done previously on some high profile cases over the last six years. Jason Hubble who heads up Lie Detectors UK is one of the leading Polygraph Examiners in the UK today and his services are very much in demand. He is an active member of the American and British Polygraph Association and is a strong advocate of using the Lie Detector in cases like this to find the truth.Read More
Had a first today, a potential client wanted to pay with BitCoin for his lie detector test payment, I have to be honest like most I have heard about the crypto currency but knew very little about how I could then turn the currency into cash.
So what do Lie Detectors UK take for lie detector test payment, initially when you book a lie detector test we take a £150 deposit, this is non refundable if you cancel 48 hours or less before the test date. On the day we take the remainder either by card or cash, sorry we don’t yet accept any type of BitCoin or other crypto currencies. We are totally transparent with our fees and charge £399 at our head office in Kent and £499 anywhere else in the UK, this includes home visits and the hire of an office close to you if required. Only yesterday we heard of someone paying £600 for a test, this is way too much and questions must be asked, the same goes for anything less than £399, ask the name of the examiner and check if they are qualified. Here is a recent post we made about an individual operating in Brighton and charging £350.
Appointments can often be made at a time to suit you including evenings and some weekends so you do not need to take time off work. Bookings can be made here on our website, we always like to have a chat with you first before we take a booking as not all cases are suitable for a lie detector test.
All examiners are members of the American and British Polygraph Association and are fully qualified and experienced, always ask the name of the examiner and google them to make sure they are qualified. Call or email us today and discuss your case with an examiner, just don’t offer to pay with BitCoin !Read More
Lie Detector for Theft
It has to be said as a Polygraph Examiner I do love a theft case, they are very black and white, you either stole the goods or not, were involved in the theft or not. I always advise any potential clients who are looking to book a lie detector for theft to let everyone who you would be looking to test know. The thinking here is most people including the thief will always initially agree but closer to the booking make excuses or in twenty five percent of our cases not turn up at all, we have also known stolen goods to be anonymously returned prior to any lie detector test for theft. So by letting all the suspects know there may not be the need to actually have any lie detector tests for theft run.
This week I was in London using the lie detector for theft on four suspects. The client called after a Rolex watch with a lot of sentimental value had been taken from his wife’s bedside cabinet, strangely enough diamond earrings also there were left. There was only four family members who had been in the house at the time of the watch going missing, against our advice he didn’t want to tell the suspects he had booked a lie detector for theft, his reasoning was he would rather tell them on the day to ensure all turned up. Questions were agreed with the client and we spoke to all the suspects and explained we were there to verify they are telling the truth and to clear them from any investigation/suspicion. Over a period of 6 hours I tested the four and as expected had one clear fail and three good passes, as I explained earlier I do love a theft case. I delivered the results verbally and in a full report to the client who that evening had agreed with all the family suspects to meet and go over the results. The conclusion was interesting, I was expecting a call from the client but instead had a very angry call from the suspect who failed the test shouting at me down the phone, we always stick by the results on the charts. The next day the client called to say the suspect who failed had admitted the theft and they were in the process of tracking the watch down, it turned out a Rolex watch without papers is not worth a great deal of money fortunately and the serial number is added to a database of stolen watches.
When we run lie detector for theft cases we discount the costs for each person we test, we have our own offices in Kent that have a large waiting room so are perfect for testing multiple people and can offer evening and weekend appointments. Get in touch today and discuss your case with a qualified and experienced examiner.Read More
So maybe you have considered a job as a Polygraph Examiner and wondered how can I get qualified and if the job is for me.
The only route is to train in America on a 10-12 week course at a American Polygraph Association recognised school and pass all of the exams which are usually weekly. Its a very tough course and intensive and has a high failure rate due to the workload and learning involved. Once you have completed the course and passed its advisable to then be mentored by an experienced Examiner who can help and guide. You would then apply for membership to the American Polygraph Association and then the British Polygraph Association. The APA have a careers page here with jobs for Qualified Examiners.
Seventy percent of Polygraph Jobs is infidelity based whilst the remainder is made up of mixed issues such as theft and allegations, whilst no two days are the same when you are working the job is very draining and only suits a certain type of person, we are often dealing with upset clients who are very emotional. How would you feel failing someone knowing their marriage is on the line and then dealing with the fallout. Since I have been an Examiner quite a few have started and are no longer trading.
There is also the costs to consider, as well as a considerable amount of time spent learning the trade there is the cost of the training, the cost of the equipment, the cost to setup a website etc. I would estimate you would need £25k. You then need to consider the market in the UK is already saturated with Private Examiners all advertising for the same work, the costs for using Google Adwords can run into thousands a month just to get work. There is also a large amount of Government Examiners in the UK who at some point will potentially either retire and enter Private Practice or setup themselves. The work can also be very sporadic, there can be weeks when there is no work, can you pay the bills?
Whilst you might feel I have been negative about Polygraph Jobs I must say that sometimes it is super rewarding, when you can help get someones life back by proving accusations made were incorrect, when you can give someone the proof they need that they have been faithful to a partner.

Cooper BMW – WARNING
Took my company car to Cooper BMW in Tunbridge Wells recently for a Winter Service. I was given a invoice that said online video, many chases and a month later I found out there was no video as no work was done, which I did suspect as the oil and screen wash levels didn’t change. Being a Polygraph Examiner I do hate it being lied to.
Then there is the issue with pricing, if you have a BMW that’s over 4 years old the servicing costs are half what an owner of a newer car would pay, clear cut discrimination to which Cooper BMW claim the pricing structure comes from BMW UK. I emailed BMW UK who replied the pricing structure is set by each retailer, yet another lie. Why should I pay more to service the same car than the owner of an older car pays? Cooper BMW have said if im not happy use another garage !
Such a shame as the service adviser Steve at Cooper BMW that I spoke to is very good at his job and his customer service skills are great, he is obviously let down by the business. My car is due back in March so lets see if Cooper BMW improve.Read More
Premier Polygraph Services
When selecting an examiner to work with the most important issue is are they qualified and experienced. How can you tell easily as the website looks good?
Fortunately, our industry has the American Polygraph Association with over 2800 polygraph examiners worldwide, the includes Government and Police Examiners. They are extremely important as they regulate the industry.
Recently we have experienced some new comers to the industry here in the UK, like Premier Polygraph Services who are not members of any recognised industry body here in the UK, especially the APA. Why does this matter to a consumer, read more below and find out why?
The American Polygraph Association (APA) is the leading professional polygraph organization in the world, representing more than 2,800 experienced polygraph examiners in private business, law enforcement and government. Professional APA polygraph examiners administer hundreds of thousands of polygraph exams each year worldwide. The APA establishes standards of ethical practices, techniques, instrumentation and research, as well as provides advanced training and continuing education programs.
APA examiners are highly qualified professionals who are motivated to help protect the public by verifying the truth, while following the highest standards of moral, ethical, and professional conduct. APA examiners pledge to follow all the rules and regulations for polygraph methodologies that are accepted and used in the field today. The APA governs the conduct of its members by requiring adherence to a Code of Ethics and a set of Standards and Principles of Practice.
In order to become an APA member, examiners must adhere to strict guidelines and educational requirements that include hundreds of hours of coursework at an APA approved school, as well as an internship. As in many respected professions, APA members must acquire annual continuing education and training in order to maintain membership. Each APA accredited school is inspected regularly and rigorously to ensure that the curriculum’s attain the highest standards by teaching the most current, fundamental polygraph techniques. Through strict adherence to training and education standards, APA examiners are able to attain accuracy rates exceeding 90 percent.
The Association is governed by a board of 11 officers who are elected by the members. Through this board, the APA represents industry segments that include government, law enforcement, private practice, education and the public at large.
In the UK we also have the British Polygraph Association who closely follow the Code of Ethics and Standards and Principals of Practice set by the APA, a list of qualified examiners can be found here.

MUST ASK QUESTIONS
Men who abuse partners could face lie detector
The Times Newspaper has today run a very interesting story that Government Ministers are seeking legal powers to run trials of polygraph testing on domestic abuse offenders which is superb news. We have long campaigned for this given the effectiveness of the polygraph and its use as a deterrent, in the private arena we often run tests for victims who wish to prove to families and friends they have been victims of abuse, we have also run tests on clients who have been wrongly accused and whom wish to prove their innocence. Lie Detectors UK completely support and welcome this approach and are ready to assist the Government when required in this work.
Article and link below
Men who are convicted of the most serious types of domestic violence and abuse face being forced to take repeated lie-detector tests in a change intended to give victims better protection.
Ministers are seeking legal powers to try out the effectiveness of polygraph testing on the highest-risk domestic abusers to see whether it reduces repeat offending or makes it more likely that they stay away from victims.
Polygraph testing was introduced for the most serious sex offenders in 2014 and has been hailed a success, with 160 offenders sent back to prison after concerns about their behaviour were highlighted by their answers.Read More
Essex Lie Detector Test
Last week we received an enquiry for a lie detector test in Essex for theft. A client had a large amount of money stolen from her house. There were no signs of a break in and the money had been left in a cupboard overnight where it had been taken from. There were only two suspects in the house who were both blaming each other. Obviously this was making life in the property difficult for all especially for the client who had the money taken. The client needed to find the truth to restore harmony in the home in Essex.
We usually advise for theft cases to tell everyone your intentions to have them tested on the lie detector. Over twenty-five percent of our theft cases are cancelled last minute when someone refuses to take a test or does not show. In this case the client had decided not to tell the two suspects as they knew both would take a lie detector test and wanted it a secret. This test was booked for an evening so no one had to take time off work; it was also a home test in Essex as the client had a distraction free environment for us to test in.
On arrival at the house, one suspect was very nervous and explained he was not happy at all, whilst the other was happy to be given the chance to clear her name. We read nothing in this as anyone taking a lie detector test in Essex would be very nervous and anxious and this is not a sign of guilt nor will it affect the results of the test. We are there to prove a person’s innocence not guilt.
During the pre-test interview both suspects denied any involvement with the theft/taking of the money, they both gave me good reasons why the other person may have taken the money. As we expected there were no admissions at all. We discussed the questions in the pre-test, we stick to three questions on a single issue, the theft. Example questions below:
R1 Did you take the money from the cupboard in this house in January 2019?
R2 Did you have any involvement with the theft of the money from the cupboard in this house in January 2019?
R3 Do you know for sure where any of the missing money in January 2019 from the cupboard in this house now is?
After explaining everything to the suspects we move on to the testing stage where multiple lie detector tests are run on each suspect, we take an average of the results on each chart to give an overall result. As expected one suspect passed and one failed. We carried out a posttest interview to see if the suspect had anything to say or could give any reasons why he failed the lie detector test, nothing was forthcoming.
Using the polygraph for theft cases is great work, if we are lucky enough to test the person who has committed the crime then we will catch them as we did in the Essex lie detector test case.
Call us today and discuss your case with a fully qualified and experienced examiner who is a member of the American and British Polygraph Association.
Polygraph stands for many writings; it was invented in 1921 by John Larson at the University of California, it was further developed and refined by Leonard Keeler in the 1930s. In America the name Polygraph is widely known and accepted as many would have been tested as the Polygraph is used by many Government organisations like the FBI, CIA, and many Police Forces. In the United Kingdom we call the Polygraph a Lie Detector, they are both exactly the same thing. Both the UK Police and the Probation Service are users of Polygraph testing in the UK testing sex offenders on probation and terror suspects.
It measures psychological responses from the body where reactions to questions are evaluated to ascertain if a subject is lying. Sensors are placed on the hand for sweat gland activity and for blood flow. A blood pressure cuff is used on the arm to measure blood pressure and sensors are placed on the body to measure upper body movement. The subject also sits on a movement sensor.
A Polygraph used to be an analog instrument that drew the signals from the body on a paper roller, now all examiners use computerized polygraphs that are far more accurate. The American Polygraph Association regulates the polygraph industry and is a sign to any potential client that the examiner has been professionally trained and will be using the latest equipment and techniques to achieve the greatest accuracy on a polygraph test. The APA was created in 1966 and has over 2700 members worldwide and promoted the highest standards of professional practice for its members. In the UK we have the British Polygraph Association known as the BPA.

If we didn’t already know it the Asylum process is rife with false claims and corruption and needs a complete overhaul to protect the people who genuinely need asylum. The former director general of immigration and deputy chief of the Border Agency Mr Wood is best placed to pass option on this and he has called for the use of the Lie Detector in asylum cases. More on the story on the BBC website here.
Its refreshing to see he understands how the lie detector works as he states “It would not be about proving that the applicant is lying, but about being reasonably confident that they are telling the truth,” This is exactly how we run any test today, we deal in truth verification.
This week I see on social media copies of what an immigrant coming to the UK can expect to receive from the Government, I am sure we all agree this can only increase the popularity of coming to the UK which has for a long time been seen as the premier place to settle. However having mandatory Lie Detector Tests would help to stop the false fraudulent applications and stop some from even coming we would like to hope, its a step forward in the right direction.
The UK Police, Home Office and Probation Services already use Lie Detectors and have more APA Examiners than are private Examiners in the UK. Lie Detectors UK Examiners are trained to the same standards and hold the same certifications, we are seeing more clients now ask to see copies of certifications which is a good thing.
Call us on 0207 859 4960 or email on email@example.com and discuss your case with a American Polygraph Association and British Polygraph Association qualified Examiner today and find out if a lie detector test would help your situation.
