Polygraph question formulation requires professional training, experience and knowledge of national polygraph standards. Only after collecting both sides of the story within the questionnaires, doing a complete forensic interview and giving the Subject every possible opportunity to be completely truthful prior to the exam, will the trained & experienced polygraph examiner formulate the final questions that will be asked on the exam ensuring they meet legal guidelines and national standards. It is our job to worry about the questions. It is your job to provide us with complete and accurate information so that we can properly formulate the questions and get you the most accurate results.
