Screening Law Enforcement
Law Enforcement and Corrections:
Make Communities Safer
Make Communities Safer
Law enforcement agencies have many contributors: police officers, sheriffs, dispatchers, jailers, and others. Corrections officials are tasked with monitoring parolees, including sex offenders. Each day, these people are confronted with the critical task of keeping communities safe.
Ongoing evaluations help ensure that personnel maintains integrity while mitigating risk for parolees.
Credibility assessments play a vital role in screening personnel to help find those best suited for the job and those at risk.
And if polygraph exams are mandatory in your hiring process, EyeDetect+ can now fulfill that requirement.
EyeDetect Makes A Difference
Continue Hiring During COVID-19
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many law enforcement agencies have implemented hiring freezes. A recent article on PoliceOne.com says this “is shortsighted, and possibly a grave mistake.”
Concerns about potential applicants spreading the Coronavirus during in-person interviews are legitimate — especially during lie detection testing. During a polygraph, social distancing isn’t possible as the examiner is in close proximity to the applicant. In addition, it’s challenging to clean all the equipment between examinees as they are in contact with two corrugated tubes, finger sensors, blood pressure cuff, and motion sensor mat.
Not so with EyeDetect. Watch the video on the right to see how EyeDetect’s automated test allows for safe social distancing during a lie detection test.
Law enforcement agencies are tasked with investigating and solving crimes. With EyeDetect, investigations can get faster closure by conducting reliable lie detection tests on suspects.
Accuracy for investigation-style EyeDetect tests has been field-tested at 90%.
EyeDetect has been used to test suspects for crimes such as murder, arson, sexual assault, felony theft, domestic violence, sexual abuse of a child, armed robbery, shoplifting, identity theft, and other crimes.
Agencies that use Law Enforcement Pre-Employment Tests (LEPET) can rely on EyeDetect to automate and greatly streamline the hiring process. And if polygraph exams are required, EyeDetect+ now fills that requirement.
A LEPET can measure truthfulness about past drug use, criminal history, or other behaviors. EyeDetect LEPET tests are modified to meet the specific requirements of all public safety agencies.
As part of the first stage in hiring, EyeDetect inexpensively and quickly eliminates candidates that are deceptive. It’s better to remove bad apples at the beginning than spend time and resources to find them later.
Corrections systems have limited budgets and staff. Workloads are so great that at-risk parolees and probationers go long periods of time without lie detection tests.
An EyeDetect Post-Conviction Sex Offender Test (PCSOT) helps corrections officials and therapist assess risk — quickly, efficiently and economically.
PCSOTs are available with EyeDetect for these scenarios:
- Instant offense (first offense)
- Monitoring (re-offense)
- Maintenance (probation or parole violations)
- Sexual history
- Domestic violence
Each PCSOT can be customized for various types of offenders:
- Juvenile offenders
- Adults with adult victims
- Adults with child victims
- Domestic violence
- Child pornography
- Voyeurs or exhibitionists
Research shows that most people conducting an interview are about 54% accurate in detecting a liar. That’s about as accurate as a “coin toss.”
Don’t leave important hiring decisions to chance. EyeDetect quickly finds dishonest candidates.
