On 5 July 2021, I filed a complaint (attached) against polygraph operator James R. Kelly with the Oklahoma Polygraph Examiners' Board. This complaint is on the agenda for the board's next quarterly meeting, which is to be held tomorrow, Friday 16 July 2021 at 10:00 in Norman:

I would be interested to hear from any polygraphers reading this what action they think would be appropriate in this case.

I have to agree with your complaint;  polygraph files do not simply disappear;  the other question is, does Oklahoma require providing a copy of the files to the person examined if requested?

Apparently not. The Oklahoma Polygraph Rules currently in effect are attached.

The Oklahama Polygraph Examiners Board met in Norman on Friday, 16 June 2021 and discussed, among other things, my complaint against polygrapher James R. Kelly of Pauls Valley. The discussion was confined to procedural questions.

The committee will appoint an investigator to look into my complaint and should have a preliminary report prepared within 30 days of receipt of the complaint, which was received on 12 July. The investigator to be appointed must be a licensed polygrapher.

The investigator will be part of a 3-person complaint review panel that will also include board member Eric Shawn Ward, who is an investigator with the Oklahoma State Bureau of investigation, and an assistant attorney general.

The relevant portion of the board meeting may be viewed here:

Hey George, based on your experience and observations over the years, how likely is it for a group of charlatans to hold a fellow charlatan accountable? Just looking at the group of people at that table, I wouldn’t bet on it.

RobbieG,

It may surprise you that although I have been publicly speaking on polygraph matters for more than two decades, I never previously filed a complaint against any polygraph operator with any state polygraph board.

In light of James Kelly's documented gross and willful violation of the Oklahoma Administrative Code, I trust that the Oklahoma Polygraph Examiners Board, which is comprised of current and retired sworn law enforcement officers, will take its responsibility seriously.
