Law enforcement agencies are comprised of police officers, sheriff’s, dispatchers, jailers and many others. These important people are confronted on a daily basis with the critical responsibility to keep communities safe.
Pre-screening job applicants is vital to find those best suited for the job, regardless of the position. Conducting ongoing evaluations helps ensure that those hired continue to safeguard citizens — and that they do so with integrity.
Law enforcement agencies that use Law Enforcement Pre-Employment Tests (LEPET) can rely on EyeDetect to help automate and greatly streamline the credibility assessment phase of the hiring process. (Download EyeDetect Law Enforcement flyer.)
A LEPET typically measure truthfulness about an applicant’s past drug history, criminal behavior (whether caught or not caught), and accuracy when completing the job application. There is an EyeDetect LEPET, which can be modified to meet the specific needs of any police or sheriff’s department.
Used as one of the first steps in the hiring process, EyeDetect can inexpensively and quickly eliminate candidates that have been untruthful. It’s better to learn in the beginning of the process than spend time and resources to discover the bad news later.
Interviewing Doesn’t Work
Research shows that personnel responsible for screening and interviewing are about as accurate as a “coin toss” in distinguishing liars from truth-tellers. Don’t leave important hiring decisions to chance.
Why EyeDetect Works
Studies on deception show that lying is more cognitively demanding than telling the truth. In other words, lying requires more thought than telling the truth. Cognitive resources are needed to hold back the truth and fabricate the lie, as well as maintain its consistency, coherence, and believability over time.
Deceptive individuals may also monitor their own personal behavior to try to appear calm and relaxed, especially while undergoing interrogation or cross-examination. Inhibiting truthful responses, maintaining credibility over time, and self-monitoring for signs of information leakage are cognitive processes that require mental effort.
It’s more difficult to lie than to tell the truth. The eyes don’t lie.
