Law Enforcement and Corrections: 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.

If polygraph exams are mandatory in your hiring process, EyeDetect+ can fulfill that requirement.

Agencies that use Law Enforcement Pre-Employment Tests (LEPET) can rely on EyeDetect to automate and streamline the hiring process.

And, if polygraph exams are required, EyeDetect+ fills that requirement.

A LEPET can measure truthfulness about past drug use, criminal history, or other target behaviors. Tests can be modified to meet the specific requirements of any agency.

As part of the first stage in hiring, EyeDetect inexpensively and quickly eliminates deceptive candidates. It’s better to remove bad apples at the beginning than spend time and resources to find them later.

Hiring and Safe Social Distancing

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many law enforcement agencies have implemented hiring freezes. A recent article on says this “is shortsighted, and possibly a grave mistake.”

Concerns about safe social distancing through the recruiting process are legitimate. During a polygraph, 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.

EyeDetect solves that issue. Watch this video to see how EyeDetect’s automated test allows for safe social distancing during testing.


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 tests has been field-tested at 90%.

EyeDetect has been used to test suspects for murder, arson, sexual assault, felony theft, domestic violence, sexual abuse of a child, armed robbery, shoplifting, identity theft, and other crimes.

Tactical Credibility Assessment

Research shows that credibility assessment tools such as EyeDetect when used with suspects arrested for sex offenses can effectively raise the base rate of admissions from under 5% to over 50%.

It is understood that one of the biggest predictors of whether someone will make a statement against self-interest is their perception of the evidence against them. Failing an accurate credibility assessment test exerts psychological pressure on the suspect to admit to hands-on offenses.

Knowing that a suspect has failed an accurate credibility assessment examination gives law enforcement personnel the added evidence needed to justify continuing an interview with a suspect.

Research shows that most people conducting an interview are 54% accurate 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.

Post Conviction Sex Offender Testing (PCSOT)

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
