Deception is Part of Human Nature and Animal Behaviour
It can be surprising to many but deception has been a human trait since life began. There is nothing novel about it, and nothing too suggest that it has diminished or increased as time passes. Deceit exists everywhere as a part of human nature and creature behaviour.
One of the main reasons for deception is the fact that it will help all living things to survive. Even a chameleon will change colour to avoid a predator. It is used on the internet to receive a date and it’s practised in business to baffle competitors.
Biologically it can be found across the spectrum of reptiles, birds, fish, mammals, insects and many plants. Invertebrates and bacteria display it too. So we might be forgiven for concluding that where there’s life, there is deceit.
People are the masters of deceit and practice it more often than all other species combined. Our deception is more elegant and we have significantly more reasons to utilise it. Maybe this is because our brains are comparatively bigger and more developed than most species. However, whilst white lies could possibly be acceptable in our society as well as expected or demanded on event, there are situations when lying is individually destructive.
When deception is detrimental, polygraph machines are invaluable in exposing it.
Primitive Procedures of establishing deception
Lie detection technologies is relatively new and certainly more civilised, compared to the historic quest for the truth.
Dry mouth test
By way of instance, the Chinese (around 1000 BC) used a readily available commodity to determine if someone was lying or not. The alleged liar would be required to spend a little time with a mouthful of dry rice and spit it out. If the rice was not moist and stayed dry, it had been considered evidence of deceit and remorse. The physiological basis of this assertion was that anxiety and stress dries the mouth area. Of course there might be a number of explanations for why a defendant may be scared or fearful but irrespective of this, if you failed the dry mouth test, you’d be executed.
Oversaw the pulse
A couple of hundred years later around 300 to 250 BC a Greek doctor (Erasistratus) quantified the pulse in an attempt to discover deceit. In 1921 the identical method would eventually become a part of polygraph exams and is still employed today.
Other uncivilised techniques, contained trials by ordeal. These were especially common in Europe and were occasionally referred to as”Judgements of God”. Defendants were put specific barbaric tasks to show their innocence. Frequently they entailed fire or water. These trials were based on the premise that God would not allow an innocent man to endure. In areas of Eastern Europe, throughout the 11th century, even some suspect had to plunge a hand into boiling water and leave it underwater for a predetermined period of time. In the event the hand surfaced unblemished (that’s impossible) that it’proved’ the accused was naive.
Another impossible evaluation involved cold water. The accused could be placed in a sack that would then be tied with a rope. The sack was submerged in cold water however in case the suspect emerged alive, they’d be judged . It was deemed, that water which is used in baptising, wouldn’t accept the person and therefore they were lying.
You will find various ways the cold water test evolved over years. It was often used on girls suspected of being witches. Who can forget the ducking stools?
From the late 1500s courts in the Netherlands commissioned a college to study the boiling water method and its effectiveness in discovering deception. Logic prevailed and it was decided the test did not prove whether a suspect was lying or not. On the other hand, the cold water system continued to be utilised through the 1700s until it had been abolished.
Walking over hot coals or carrying hot irons for an extended time period were two approaches used to define innocence. If no flaws were evident after the ordeal, they healed quickly, there was no guilt. You may imagine how often that happened!
Luckily, as civilisation progressed and science evolved, people started to appreciate that tests based on divine intervention were unreliable. We have state of the art polygraph machines to determine deception with fully competent and large trained examiners who can achieve accuracy levels of over 90%.

Northumberland Police get a result using the Lie Detector
Congratulations to Northumberland Police Polygraph Examiners, with over 400 sex offenders put back behind bars through the Polygraph program this is another victory.
A pervert who admitted he had raped a child when he was given a lie detector test while under investigation for unrelated sex offences has been jailed for almost a decade.
The 46-year-old, who had 16 illegal images of children on his phone, was asked by the police during the arrest and investigation process if he would participate in a polygraph test.
Newcastle Crown Court heard Nicholson agreed and confessed during the lie detector questioning that he had attacked a girl in his past, while he was living in a bedsit in Sunderland, and told Northumberland Police detectives who she was.
The court heard the victim, who is now an adult, was interviewed by detectives and found the courage to share sickening details of her shocking ordeal.
Nicholson, now of Gatacre Street, Blyth, Northumberland, admitted rape and six offences of indecent assault.
Judge Stephen Earl praised the victim’s courage in providing details of her ordeal when she was approached by the police and jailed Nicholson for nine years and four months with a two-year extended licence period.
The judge said: “It was the police who approached her initially because of the fact he had undertaken a polygraph test in relation to the 2018 offending, unrelated to her.
“A number of people do not do so ever, many people do not do so for a good many years.”
Judge Earl applauded the “inner strength” of the victim in speaking out.
Nicholson must now sign the sex offenders register and abide by the terms of a sexual harm prevention order for life.
The victim said in her impact statement she has managed to make a “healthy life” for herself and is proud of all she has achieved, despite her traumatic past.
She said: “I haven’t let this man’s abuse destroy my life entirely. He stole my childhood but he has not stolen my adulthood.”
Liam O’Brien, defending, said Nicholson had an unhappy childhood and was bullied and had difficulties.
“There appears to be genuine expressions of remorse.
“This came to light because, as part of the police proceedings that followed from him being apprehended for the previous offences, he was asked if he would participate in a polygraph test.
“There was no power of the police to oblige him to do that, they couldn’t force him to do it but he agreed to do it and when it was put to him the polygraph indicated there was perhaps something he would share with the police he told them who they needed to speak to.”
“The victim’s bravery has helped ensure that Nicholson faced justice for his appalling crimes, and we hope she is now receiving any support she needs.
“We would encourage anyone who has experienced sexual abuse to speak out in the knowledge they will be listened to.”

Terrorists to take lie detector tests
Is this about time given the sex offender polygraph testing has been so successful in the UK. Lie Detectors UK fully support this move.
Terrorists could be made to take a lie detector test to prove they have reformed and are not planning to carry out another attack.
Plans to introduce “polygraph testing” were announced by the Government as part of a wave of measures being described as a “major overhaul” in the way terrorists are punished and monitored, including tougher sentences to see them locked up for longer.
It is understood there are hopes terrorists who are going to be out on licence could be made to take the test in a similar way to which sex offenders are sometimes questioned to check their behavior.
More details of The Counter Terrorism (Sentencing and Release) Bill have been released after plans for change were put in place in the wake of the latest London Bridge attack and later announced during the Queen’s Speech.
It is less than two months since convicted terrorist Usman Khan embarked on a killing spree armed with two knives and wearing a fake suicide vest after attending a prisoner rehabilitation programme near London Bridge.
– Force dangerous terrorists who receive extended determinate sentences to serve the whole time behind bars.
– Ensure those convicted of serious offences such as preparing acts of terrorism or directing a terrorist organisation would have to spend a minimum of 14 years in jail.
– Scrap early release from jail for those classed as dangerous and handed extended determinate sentences – in which criminals have to spend longer on licence after prison.
– Double the number of counter terrorism probation officers.
– Make more places available in probation hostels so authorities can monitor terrorists in the weeks after they are released from prison.
– Increase counter-terrorism policing funding by £90 million year-on-year for the coming year to £906 million.
– Give an immediate £500,000 cash injection for support for victims of terrorism and a review of services available.
– Provide more specialist psychologists and trained imams who help to assess the risk of radicalised offenders.
– Offer more training for front-line prison and probation staff to identify and challenge extremism behind bars and on licence.
Terrorists deemed not to be a risk would have to serve two-thirds of their sentence before the Parole Board could consider them for release.
Jonathan Hall QC, the independent reviewer of terrorism legislation, will also review the way in which agencies like the police, probation and security services investigate and monitor terrorists – known as Multi Agency Public Protection Arrangements (Mappa).
Home Secretary Priti Patel said: “The senseless terror attack at Fishmongers’ Hall in November confronted us with some hard truths about how we deal with terrorist offenders, which is why we immediately announced a review into sentencing and licence conditions, to do whatever is necessary to stop these sickening attacks from taking place.
“Today we are delivering on those promises.”
Justice Secretary Robert Buckland said: “Terrorists pose a great risk to our society and our way of life, which is why we must bring them to justice and keep the public safe.”
Plans for the Bill were first mooted shortly after the November attack, which claimed the lives of Saskia Jones and Jack Merritt.
At the time Mr Merritt’s father Dave hit out at Boris Johnson, accusing him of seeing an opportunity to score political points during the general election in the aftermath of the tragedy.
Khan, a 28-year-old British national from Staffordshire, had been released from prison on licence in December 2018, halfway through a 16-year prison sentence after he was convicted of terror offences in February 2012.
He was part of an al Qaida-inspired terror group, linked to radical preacher Anjem Choudary, that plotted to bomb the London Stock Exchange and build a terrorist training camp on land in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir owned by his family.
Staffordshire Police is being investigated by the Independent Office for Police Conduct for its role in managing Khan.
In the year to the end of September, there were 44 convictions for terrorism offences, with 17 offenders being sent to jail for between four and 10 years, the Government said.
Five were jailed for 10 years or more and one was handed a life sentence.
Around 245 convicted terrorists were freed from jail between 2012 and 2019.
Shadow home secretary Diane Abbott said the announcement of a security overhaul was “an admission of failure” by the Government.
“Major terrorist outrages have occurred all too frequently, including attacks by perpetrators who were known to the security services,” she said.
Liberal Democrat home affairs spokeswoman Christine Jardine said judges already had the power to lock up terrorists for life while polygraphs were “not accurate or reliable enough” for such critical decisions.
“We will continue to oppose authoritarian laws that do little to make us safer, but a lot to undermine essential British freedoms,” she said.

Funny Lie Detector Story
I wanted to share with you an almost comical experience I had maybe about 20-years ago with an individual who was on probation for a sexual molestation offense. He was tough, evasive, complaining, ridged, and even confrontational. However, I was able to maintain an objective disposition (as best I could, I feel I’m much better at this now than I was 20-years ago,) but the turning point came maybe about the third appointment he had with us. He was required to pay for his examination. What made this unusual was that instead of paying dollar bills for the test, he had first gone to the bank and obtained $250 in quarters, and brought this to pay for his test, thinking this would be something that I would be angry about this kind of defiance. However, instead of being angry about this, Paula and I look as if we were more amused, and we laughed about it. More importantly, his attitude also changed. Oh by the way, the tons of quarters he presented really did not present any kind of problem because they were at least rolled up. He disclosed the name of the bank he had used, and later that day I just returned to that same bank and exchanged the quarter mine for paper cash.

Infidelity Polygraph UK Case Study – Cheating Partners
Afraid of throwing away what had been a great connection, terrified of decided that she would afterwards regret, Jane had stayed in the relationship with her partner, even though she knew that things were not perfect and could be better.
Not able to put up with the constant impression that she had been lied to, tired of not knowing what to think, Jane was lying to her friends and family. She was beginning to feel like she was on the verge of a breakdown.
Desperate to do something, Jane decided to book a lie detector test for himself and her partner, Mike. Keep reading to find out how the test directed Jane and Mike to have a deeper, more meaningful connection and relationship.
Lies, Fiction and Deceit in a Relationship without Evidence
With only a sense that her spouse was lying to her, the lines between fact and fiction had begun to blur Jane.
With no concrete evidence, Jane felt like she could not talk to her family or friends regarding her suspicions, she just sounded insecure and unwanted. After being together for such a long time, in addition, it sounded really stupid to say out loud.
Mike was his usual loving self, actually he’d been really good. But, her instincts were still telling her something was going on.
Jane was going round in circles about what to for the very best for months, and she couldn’t create a decision., Mike was giving away nothing, and half her felt like that she should be imagining it.
Really all Jane wished to do was ignore her feelings and continue as before. She had no idea that taking the polygraph would produce the outcomes it did.
Jane didn’t understand when it had begun, but she did know that Mike was lying. Trying hard to make sense of what had been happening to her connection and self-esteem, it had reached a stage where she had to understand the facts on way or another to decide how to move on.
Six months ago, her world had come crashing down when a fantastic friend confessed they had seen her spouse Mike out with another woman during the week.
Jane had wanted to believe him, Mike worked, so it was difficult to tell what he was around during the day. She’d actually made a decision to follow him a few occasions, but it always felt too pathetic.
Really making the telephone call to discuss this with a polygraph examiner was the hardest part. Jane was actually relieved to speak to the person on the opposite end of the telephone, who had been warm and very sympathetic.
Couples Polygraph Test – How to Book
Mike and Jane decided to do a couples polygraph test, Mike wanted Jane tested at the same time. You can send an enquiry via our Contact Form online.
Mike had really been cheating on her for several years. Mike had believed he would bluff his way through the polygraph test, but he’d found it cathartic to tell someone the truth about his cheating for once in the pre-test.
Knowing he was going to lose Jane, he’d wanted to tell her himself. Saying it loudly had left him see he had to get some professional help, he was hooked on sex.
Deep down Jane felt relief and empathy that Mike had told her but her first feelings were disappointment, disgust and betrayal.
Even though it was bad news, in addition, it marked the beginning of a new chapter to the couple. Mike started therapy for sex addiction after six months, Jane and Mike got back together. Mike still sees a therapist and the pair attended couples counselling together when they rekindled their relationship.

What is a Polygraph or Lie Detector Test ?
In case you watch daytime TV, undoubtedly you will have seen a show like Jeremy Kyle in which the host utilizes a lie indicator to demonstrate or invalidate, that one of the visitors is lying. It perpetually fixates on whether somebody has swindled, or stolen from a companion or relative, or brought about criminal harm – all exceptionally emotional and awesome for TV evaluations.
In any case, while you will have heard the term lie detector, or polygraph, not everybody really realizes what this involves or even what the hardware resembles. What’s more, on account of the previously mentioned appear, this is in light of current circumstances – everything adds to the demeanor of puzzle. This “mysterious” machine which can get inside the person to be tested body and really read their brains!
Lie Detector Test Near Me
We offer polygraph lie detector tests in locations UK Nationwide, the most popular areas are Lie Detector Testing in London, Lie Detector Testing in Birmigham, Lie Detector Testing in Liverpool and Lie Detector Testing in Kent.
If just it was so mysterious. Be that as it may, in the same way as other things which entrance us, it is immovably established in science.
Polygraph gear comprises of a few sections.
The Pneumograph comprises of two elastic tubes which are connected to the subject’s upper body.
A Blood Pressure Cuff is put around the highest point of the subject’s arm.
The GSR skin sensor measure how much the subject is sweating.
The Plesmograph measures blood volume.
The screen gets the greater part of the physiological markers, which we will broadly expound in a minute, and records them, either (verifiably) on a long segment of paper or, a great deal more probable, a PC screen. The Examiner is the master who unravels the outcomes.
What Does the Equipment Do?
When we lie, our bodies respond automatically. We have no influence over our bodies involuntary responses. The hardware specified above measures these reactions and records them.So we should take a gander at each of those segments in more detail.
The Pneumograph comprises of two empty elastic tubes. The elastic tubes are loaded with air and put around the subject’s midriff. As the subject inhales, the air in the tubes is uprooted, and it is this development of dislodged air which the pneumograph measures. The development will accelerate or back off, contingent upon whether the subject is focused on (lying) or loose (being honest).
The Blood Pressure Cuff is fundamentally the same as the ones utilized by Doctors and Nurses in a surgery or healing center setting, despite the fact that in a polygraph circumstance it will be marginally less expanded, making it more agreeable. When we are being misleading, our heart rate increments and this is gotten by the Blood Pressure Cuff – again because of the air dislodging in the sleeve as every heart beat may be ‘listened’, or all the more precisely “felt” by the sleeve.
The GSR is utilized to quantify discretionary dermal movement, or, to put it all the more just – sweat. The fingertips are unfathomably permeable, so this is the ideal spot to search for sweating, which is another automatic reaction to lying. Little finger plates are connected to two of the subject’s fingers, and these measure the sweat reaction – the more sweat that is available on the plate, the better the power is led.
The Examiner is, doubtlessly, the most essential ‘bit of hardware’ there is in a polygraph examination. The best, most advanced hardware on the planet is not going to yield great outcomes without a profoundly talented inspector to translate the reactions. He or she will nearly watch the reactions recorded, and in addition the general non-verbal communication of the subject all through the examination – group the majority of the reactions together and, with their broad information and preparing, will give an exact outcome. An ineffectively gifted analyst will have the capacity to give no superior to anything a half exactness result – you should flip a coin – so guaranteeing you are getting the most profoundly prepared experts accessible will give you the most precise outcome conceivable.
So how are the Results Deciphered?
Amid a polygraph, or lie locator, test, the subject will be posed a few questions. Some of those inquiries will be ‘standard, for example, ‘is your name … .?’ To which the subject will answer honestly. That will give a base estimation against which to think about the important question, for example, ‘did you take the cash from the drawer?’ If the subject didn’t take the cash, the responses recorded will stay consistent – in any case, if the subject stole the cash, and denies it, there will be a stamped contrast in the responses recorded on the screen. You can read more about addressing procedures on our site.
In any case, does it Really Detect Lies?
Entirely – no. Polygraphs can’t read minds. ‘Lie Detector’ is a name given to the test by the media throughout the years. The word Polygraph, truly deciphered, signifies ‘numerous works’, and this alludes to the more established style machines which used to record the progressions in physiological reactions utilizing an alternate pen for each substantial capacity (breath, heart rate, and sweat). Each pen would climb and down on a long portion of paper, and vacillate with greater markings on the paper when lying. In any case, it wasn’t recording contemptibility, it was recording the developments of the subject – developments which change when the subject is under anxiety.
Cynics will dependably rush to bring up that anybody experiencing a polygraph examination will be anxious, and they would be correct. In any case, as the subject is apprehensive all through the test, the distinctions in reactions is as yet going to happen – they will be more anxious, or pushed, at whatever point they are lying.
In its easiest shape, a polygraph, or lie locator, is a discussion between the subject and the analyst. The main distinction amongst that and a discussion sitting at a bar is that the subject’s reactions are being observed and analyzed – something which is difficult to manage without the utilization of the hardware.
It’s not difficult, it’s not physically awkward, and – as there are just you two in the stay with nobody else tuning in – it isn’t even truly unbalanced. An expert Polygraph inspector will never be judgemental, so whatever your “mystery” is, you won’t be made to feel awful about it. Experts are likewise bound by a strict code of morals, and, unless they have your express consent, they won’t unveil or talk about your outcomes with any other person.
Along these lines, take away the riddle and there you have it. Not all that startling all things considered!Read More

Polygraph Testing for Lie Detection – Used by Essex Police
Essex Criminals and Sex Offenders Continue Lie Detection Tests in 2020
“The polygraph examination itself is carried out in three stages, with an interview, followed by the polygraph test and a post-test discussion. We have seen some participants tell us about reoffending during the pre-test interview and others make admissions after undergoing the polygraph. We have had occasions where offenders have admitted further offences or breaches of preventative orders, which have triggered investigations that are ongoing.
We have also seen some admit that they may have potential contact with children, which has allowed us to directly intervene and keep people safe.”

Liverpool Lie Detector Test UK Polygraph Testing
Lie Detector company (Jason Hubble) offers free test after suspended Wallasey Labour member challenges MP – The offer followed row over whether threats and homophobic comments were made at party meeting
Jason Hubble the owner of a leading lie detector company has offered to carry out tests to resolve a dispute within a Merseyside Labour party as reported in the Liverpool Echo Lie Detector Test article back in 2014.
Suspended Wallasey Labour member Paul Davies called for the tests after allegations of threats and homophobic remarks at a party meeting earlier in the summer.
The accusations have been strongly denied but are understood to be one of the factors which led to the suspension of Wallasey Constituency Labour Party (CLP) by national party bosses.
An investigation is now taking place but Mr Davies said he would submit to a lie detector test and called upon MP Angela Eagle or those who had made the allegations to also take one.
After the ECHO revealed Mr Davies’ challenge Jason Hubble, chief examiner of Lie Detectors UK offered to carry out the tests for free.
Lie Detector Tests £399 UK Nationwide in Local Locations
Normally, the company would charge £399 for a UK lie detector test, but Mr Hubble said he “would love to polygraph a politician” and said “there has to be a sense of jeopardy for it to work”.
Mr Hubble says the tests provide 92% to 98% accuracy and the Ministry of Justice has been training probation officers to use polygraphs to ensure serious sex offenders adhere to their licence conditions.
The test works by measuring body functions such as blood pressure, pulse, and breathing while the person is asked questions.
Jason Hubble from Lie Detectors UK who has offered free polygraph tests after Wallasey MP Angela Eagle was challenged by a local party member Paul Davies
Jason Hubble said some people try to beat the test but they have different techniques for spotting this and compensating.
He admitted the offer to do the test is “good publicity for us” but insisted he would be able to help, and said he had tested more than 1,000 people in cases ranging from infidelity to theft and said: “Around 70 to 80% of people we test pass.”
He said: “I would love to polygraph a politician. I’m not involved with any political party, but we get so many promises from them, but I don’t think any of them would put themselves though it.”
Paul Davies, who is co-vice chair of the suspended CLP, has been the most outspoken critic of the Wallasey MP since the allegations were made, and even spoke at length at a public meeting organised by Wirral TUC and attended by hundreds of local party members, insisting the claims of threats and homophobic comments could not be true.
Mr Davies said he would be happy to take the test, and said: “I’m looking forward to it.”
Jeremy Kyle Lie Detector Testing – Real Polygraph Test Results
However, earlier this week a source close to Ms Eagle dismissed the idea of the MP taking a polygraph saying they are “are only extensively used in Britain on the Jeremy Kyle show” and adding: “In most European judicial systems, polygraph tests are not considered reliable evidence.”
The ECHO understands that Labour’s National Executive Committee is now taking evidence for their investigation into the allegations about Wallasey CLP and Mr Davies will be given an opportunity to give evidence to them.
