You can be confident that the answers and advice provided to *Concernedone* above all apply to you also.

In addition, you need to make an appointment with a psychology specialist M.D. or a clergyman. Once you have discussed your emotional baggage with a professional you will no longer feel compelled to discuss it with anyone else.

Never include that embarrassing incident in any application or accompanying statement, and never reveal it to anyone who is not constrained by privilege from revealing your secrets.

And remember: a polygraph examiner is, by job description, the *opposite* of constrained by privilege.

Your U.S. Secret Service applicant file, including your polygraph results, is effectively a permanent record. You'll want to file a Privacy Act request for this file, including the polygraph report.

I do not know for sure whether your admission would preclude your being hired by any other federal law enforcement or intelligence agency.

It is highly unlikely that the U.S. Secret Service would make a referral to local criminal investigators based on the admission you described. You should not expect investigators to come knocking on your door.

While the record of your polygraph interrogation will be shared with other federal agencies with which you might in the future seek employment, pursuant to the Privacy Act, it should not be shared with any non-federal agencies.


Thank you for that information. Thatís reassuring. How long is the statement information from the poly kept on record? Would I ever have a chance at any other agencies?

This sucks because I have no criminal history, no hard drug use, security clearance, served in the military, and have been an outstanding citizen all my life. Literally, a top tier candidate but because of my high integrity and honesty I am now in this position. Living with the UPMOST regret right now.

I just recently took my polygraph for the USSS. I admitted to something that happened over 16 years ago not knowing it was a crime (happened when I was 12-13 and Iím now 31). Like an idiot I didnít read this website or about polygraphs beforehand. When I was 12-13 going through puberty I had a (what I now know as) bestiality incident.  I didnít know of bestiality or the crime it was until now. It happened so long ago, was one stupid isolated incident, and is not any reflection of who I am. It is Something I am extremely embarrassed about and ashamed of. It was one isolated incident like mentioned above and given that I didnít think much of it. I am nervous out of mind mind now of being prosecuted over something so stupid and ruin my life over something that is so embarrassing, not a reflection of me at all, and happened when I was a minor going through puberty. Iím also Interested in becoming an police officer and donít want this to ruin that opportunity for the rest of my life or my opportunity with any other 3-letter organization. I pretty much know I killed myself for the USSS.

I am so embarrassed, regretful, disgusted, and scared for himself and my future. Iím really in my head and freaking out right now. Should I be worried? And if so, what do I need to be prepared for?

I need some serious help with this situation right now. Iím shaking as Iím writing this message.

So this just happened to me. In the same situation, happened when I was 12-13 and Iím 31 now. Like an idiot I didnít read this website or about polygraphs beforehand and didnít know of bestiality or the crime it was. It happened so long ago, happened only once, and is not any reflection of who I am. Mine would actually be considered bestiality by definition . It was one isolated incident like mentioned above and given all that I didnít think much of it. Itís was for a Secret Service polygraph and I am nervous out of mind mind now of being prosecuted over something so stupid and ruin my life over something that is so embarrassing and that happened when I was a minor going through puberty. Iím also in the process of becoming an police officer and donít want this to ruin that opportunity for the rest of my life or my opportunity with any other 3-letter organization.

I am so embarrassed, regretful, disgusted, and scared for himself and my future. Iím really in my head and freaking out right now. Should I be worried?? And if so, why do I need to be prepared for??

I need some serious help with this situation right now. Iím shaking as Iím writing this message.

If you want to discuss how to pass a VSA exam then you must ask a new question in a new topic, not append it to an existing thread on another subject.

Please include more general details about your situation.

Are there any exercises or techniques to calm yourself down before the test.  Im taking a pre-employment DLCQT.  I've read the LBTLD multiple times, but since my future is on the line with voodoo science, im still a ball of nerves.    And if I do manage to calm myself down, what if the polygrapher senses the contempt I have for them or the process?  What if they pick up on cues that I dont fear or respect the machine?  Would that end up as an automatic failure?

10  Polygraph and CVSA Forums / Post-Conviction Polygraph Programs / Switched to EyeDetect
 on: Jan 13th, 2020 at 4:10pm 
My quality of life has greatly improved since I learned about countermeasures from "The Lie Behind the Polygraph Test". I no longer had to stress over scheduled polygraph tests or maintain the unrealistic lifestyle I was expected to.

The testing organization recently switched to the EyeDetect system and I can't find any information about it. The only thing I have learned (although I'm not sure about accuracy ) is that it no longer depends on control questions.

Does anyone have any information about EyeDetect? Will similar countermeasures work? Is accuracy really any better than the traditional polygraph?
