With so many providers available to us, offering the same types of services online, it can be quite overwhelming deciding on which one to use. Finding the best UK Lie Detector test service is not straightforward.
For example, if you want a Newcastle, Durham or Carlisle lie detector test you need to look for a nationwide provider unless there is a local company employing a lot of polygraph examiners.
Self-employed polygraph examiners working alone
There might be a single self-employed examiner locally but in a largely unregulated industry, how do you know if he or she is experienced and qualified. Are you sure the examiner is unbiased and isn’t a friend of the person who is asking you to take the test?
There is no doubt that there are exceptionally good polygraph examiners who work alone. However, when an examiner is newly qualified he or she will seek to recoup the expensive cost of their training and equipment. Hence there is a possibility that they will seek a high quantity of clients in their initial two years of practice. Quantity is not always quality.
The singular self-employed may also not have the most up to date equipment or be accredited by any recognised regulatory body such as the APA (American Polygraph Association).
Examiners working under the umbrella of an organisation
Unlike polygraph examiners who work for themselves, those who work for or with an established company don’t have to worry about recouping their costs. They are provided with a steady stream of work according to their specialist skills.
An ethical code of conduct is required of them by the organisation, whether employed or as an associate, in terms of their accreditation certificate.
They will also be required to complete ongoing training for their entire career whilst employed by a reputable organisation.
In addition, whenever they conduct a lie detector test the results are peer reviewed, ensuring the highest level of accuracy.
Examiners working alone are answerable only to themselves and if accredited, to the organisation that has accredited them. In their first years of practice, they invariably do not have the resources available that employed or associate examiners have.

Lie detector test result evidence
Private polygraph examinations are largely used to settle disputes before they get to courts or tribunals. However, this doesn’t mean that lie detector test results are inadmissible. If submitted to civil courts as part of wider evidence the judge will decide whether or not to allow them. There is more likelihood that a judge will consider them when the test has been taken voluntarily and there is corroborating evidence.
Your solicitor will mention that you have taken a test with no deception found. This will be logged in the minds of those in court so would therefore place you in good stead.
It’s wise to consider that like many other highly professional services the cheapest is rarely the best. If something important is riding on the results it’s worth budgeting sensibly for it.
For family disputes, there is no better way to prove you are telling the truth than providing them with a complete, professional, analytical report that clearly indicates no deception was found.
