Mr. Smith is also available for independent assessments of polygraph examinations administered by other polygraphists. This service is to ensure that polygraph examinations are prepared, conducted, and documented according to professional standards.
Ohio Polygraph & Associates offers private examiners, who are not members of any government or police agency, so there is no conflict of interests. We also offer sworn law enforcement examiners, who are considered experts in interviewing to any law enforcement agency that requests us. All examiners follow federally approved standards and guidelines. The latest technology and state-of-the-art Axciton computerized polygraph is used for all examinations, which can include sound and video. After charts are read, all examinations are validated a second and third time by using Objective and Probabilities scoring, creating even greater accuracy.
As a Forensic Polygraph Examiner, Mr. Smith participates in continuing polygraph education seminars, as well as professional association activities. He is an active member of the American Polygraph Association, American Association of Police Polygraphists, National Polygraph Association, and the Ohio Association of Polygraph Examiners.
