Does anyone know if there are any PDs or Sheriffs that do not use the polygraph in Florida or Arizona?

Thanks

ALL AZ LEA use the poly as a requirmenent of the state licensing agency.

As far as Florida is concerned I really have no idea.

Per FDLE (Florida), all LEO agencies have to conduct a Poly or CVSA

Okay, I have a few questions.Does anyone know of any northern california agencies that dont poly? Also what about the state park rangers and local county rangers? I know CDC, Youth Authority Dont. poly, and CHP does a voice stress test. Can someone give me more info about the Stress test? Ive heard its a joke, then ive heard some say its better than a polygraph ???. I really dont want to take a polygraph Undecided, but if I have to I will.  Im going to work in law enforcement no matter what, but I really dont want to move to another state or be a corrections officer, you know what I mean? Thats why I might just go for the california highway patrol.....that is if I can pass there stress test. Can anyone shead some light on any of this? THANK YOU********

Add Long Beach (CA) PD to the poly list. They have an interrogator on-staff, and they also use Intercept in LA and Santa Ana

Remember good people, Intercept is headed by Edward Gelb....

Tulsa, Oklahoma PD does not require a poly or a CVSA.

Washington DC Metro Transit Police does not poly, but uses the the even more insane CVSA.

Here is the link to the Boston PD websitehttp://www.ci.boston.ma.us/police/default.asp

It appears that they do not poly. I don't know if you live there. If you don't you might as well forget about it. They have some pretty extreme requirements for employment in the dept. I have never seen that even here in good ol' CA.

Read it and be shocked

This thread hasn't been updated in almost 7 years...anyone have information relevant to 2012?  I would have to imagine since the economy imploded some LE agencies have dropped the poly due to budget cuts.

Joe, unfortunately just the reverse has happened, as the economy sinks deeper the number of applicants has multiplied and the poly has actually become much more prevalent and is used as an extra tool to eliminate candidates from the ever larger number. Even agencies that at one time were dead set against the poly now have signed on themselves. The truth is, it's a "test" that only works on the uninformed and naive. Currently, I'm on chapter 3 of TLBTLD, a great title that dispels the myths and falsehoods on which the poly depends to work. The whole point is to place one in front of a machine that one is led to believe can read minds, therefore you are most likely to be pressed into admitting to a number of disqualifying past transgressions. Do read the book and you will be more than prepared for it.

Bump!

Can we get an updated list going?  I'm interested in pursuing a B.Sc. in forensics but have some minor (marijuana) use in my past, so I want to get a better feel for the current situation. Any help appreciated!  Smiley
