Finally a step in the right direction, its been debated in UK Government circles for the last few years to increase the use of the Lie Detector Program following the very successful Sex Offender management Lie Detector Tests. Recently its been noted that over ten UK Government staff have been trained and subsequently applied for membership of the American Polygraph Association (APA). All Examiners working for Lie Detectors UK are APA members and have many years of experience already in the industry.
High-risk domestic abusers could face mandatory lie detector tests when released from prison under legislation to be introduced in parliament today to overhaul how the crime is tackled. Im sure the public will be pleased to see the term ‘mandatory’. This will help to protect vulnerable people in our society today.
Abusers may have to agree to regular polygraph testing as one of the conditions put in their release licence from jail. The measure is part of a bill that for the first time defines domestic abuse and makes clear that it includes economic abuse, such as depriving a person of food or forcing them into debt.
A new civil order will allow courts to impose a range of restrictions, including banning individuals from contacting victims while the police investigate.
The domestic abuse bill includes the power to make perpetrators given domestic abuse protection orders attend rehabilitation programmes…

Cambridge Lie Detector Test
I do love Cambridge and the surrounding areas, this week I had an interesting case for a client in Cambridge. The client had hosted a party at their house and during the party one of the guests had stolen an expensive watch. For theft we always recommending talking first to the suspects and giving them chance to return the goods anonymously, often when a lie detector test is discussed all will be up to take a test, however I would estimate over twenty five percent of the theft cases we run we get a no show, I have heard many excuses.
This week one of the people we were due to test had a relative in hospital and needed to be with them, they have yet to give a time to be tested and we are flexible, evenings and weekends can be chosen. Also the venue can be chosen by the client, whilst we have our own offices in Kent we are also able to hire offices in all major cities in the UK and come to a home address as well providing its a distraction free environment. My client now has his suspect and we are hoping the right thing is done and the watch is returned to its rightful owner, its worthless as stolen watches have serial numbers and without the box and paperwork cant be sold on.
If you are now searching to book a lie detector test please ensure you know the name of the examiner and that you have made sure they are qualified, you can do this by checking tht they are a member of the American Polygraph Association here
We were recently awarded Best Polygraph Testing Company 2019 for a reason so get in touch today and discuss your case for a Cambridge Lie Detector Test with a qualified examiner, fixed pricing from £399 at our own offices.Read More

UKPA examiners are highly skilled and qualified experts who assist clients who employ our services by verifying the truth, they follow very high standards of moral, ethical, and professional conduct. UKPA requires its members to adhere to the American Polygraph Associations Principles of Practice and Code of Ethics.
To become a UKPA member, qualified examiners must adhere to strict guidelines and educational requirements that include hundreds of hours of coursework at an accredited APA school. All members must ensure they adhere to the APA continuing education and training rule to maintain membership.

So I hear on the grapevine that the producers of Love Island have decided to use the ‘Lie Detector’ again this year saying its an integral part of the show. Will they completely fake it like previous years and make the results up or will they be using the services of a qualified APA professional and using a format and question construction that actually gives some accuracy? Last year in 2018 the Love Island producers made the bold claim that the ‘Lie Detector Test’ that was run on the show was actually real when in fact it was a £99 device bought from Amazon designed for parties and has absolutely no accuracy whatsoever. The results would have been fabricated for television, made up by the producers of the show. I can assure you that no real Lie Detector Test is ever run the same way that was portrayed in the show, our tests last around two hours and comprise of three relevant questions on one issue asked over multiple charts with control questions allowing a qualified examiner to achieve accuracy of 95%, with many scientific studies and research to back this up.
Even former Islanders have questioned results; last year, former 2016 contestant Kady McDermott took to Twitter to respond to fans. After 2018’s Love Island power couple Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham’s future was left hanging in the balance from the lie detector episode, Kady wrote: “Oh you guys actually think it’s a legit lie detector? Lol.” Nathan Massey, winner of the 2016 series, tweeted: “PLEASE Ex-Love Islanders how accurate is the lie-detector test for the sake of my own sanity, I’m losing my mind #loveisland,” to which his LI partner Cara De La Hoyde replied: “It’s not real but they convince you it is major head f**k.”
In 2018 an ITV spokesperson insisted that “the results of the tests are genuine”.
Lie Detectors UK hope that if the Love Island Lie Detector is used again that the producers of the show find their moral compass and inform viewers of the accuracy level which is zero and let fans know this is just for fun, or contact Lie Detectors UKs who have recently been awarded the ‘UKs Best Polygraph Testing Company’ and we can look at doing this segment of the show accurately.Read More

How UK Polygraph Testers Handle Awkward Clients
This is a good question, what do you do when a person you’ve been asked to conduct a polygraph examinations with is annoying, deliberately offensive and it seems like he or she makes everybody uncomfortable. What examiner hasn’t ever experienced this? This is someone who continually displays anger or conceit, or maybe even superiority. If the subject is on probation of course, you can say something like the person is “non-cooperative” or just do things to fuel that haughtiness or threaten them with lock up, and nothing ever changes. Yeah, and I realize that there are also sources who would give advice just to deal with it, it’s the guys or gals problem, and not yours.

However, if this person is, for example, someone who is a PCSOT individual who will be on probation for several years and will probably be in your examination chair about every four to six months, you might want to think of a possible avenue that will not only help you but might even be of great assistance to this subject.
One thought might be to understand the source of your own annoyance before you react. This kind of helps you figure out whether you’re being realistic in taking offense to this person’s demeanor. If you call the person out, you might even create more unnecessary tension. With that in mind, here’s a few thoughts that might work pretty well for your own follow up behavior.
First, “Ignore it.” An obnoxious individual may simply want attention. Is he or she just trying to get a rise out of you, or any others that he or she has contact with. If ignored, I’ve seen that behavior diminish on its own. Oh, maybe not right away, but about the third, or maybe even the second time I have contact with them. I have to tell you that change of attitude or behavior change always does amaze me when it occurs. I find that you have to be consistent in ignoring the behavior.
Of course, another alternative is to confront the offender but recognize that your confronting or corrective action might only anger him or her. One thing that I thought was interesting that individuals that I’ll call “prejudiced people” seem to be much more likely to change if they can first be made to feel good about themselves. Try asking good, self-affirming questions of a person whose behavior you’re trying to soften. Shining up someone’s self-esteem may help him or her feel less threatened. Similarly, if the offender won’t seem to soften up, another approach could consist of a little praise when the humor is more mature.
Polygraph Examiners: Not A Lie Detector, it’s a Truth Determinate
The experts on pre-test interviews and related observations and behaviors like the John Reid Associates and Stan Walters note in their work that the attitude displayed by the examiner during pre-test interviews should include being cordial and polite, interested and sincere. I agree, and I feel it should stay even-tempered and avoid challenging the examinee’s statements or alibis. An emphasis that I have found myself repeating that also seems to help is relating that the polygraph test is a “NOT A LIE DETECTOR” as much as it is a “TRUTH DETERMINATE” procedure.
The popular belief is of course is that it is a lie detector and the automatic attitude from the subject taking the test is that it is an instrument process to “Catch me doing something I’m not supposed to be doing” or “Catch me lying.” However, in bringing up that this is a “Truth Determinate” process, I’ve found that the belief of this event appears to subconsciously change a thinking that “This guy wants to prove I’m telling the truth. Everyone else things I’m guilty,” or that he did it, or whatever. I’m saying that this has worked for me.
Also, your own appearance and behavior has to match this attitude. This includes facial expressions of understanding and acceptance. Obviously, expressions of disgust, disbelief or anger work against this presentation. The behavioral attitudes of examinees obviously differ from composed and cooperative to nervous, angry and even fearful. We experience examinees who are overly anxious and even overly polite, guarded and complaining, plus an much even longer list. But I feel that our own behavioral attitude is an important game changer.
