Suitability Criteria

Public safety is a high-stress, people-intensive profession. The importance of ensuring applicants can perform the job is paramount. The following polygraph test issues seem suitable for most public safety departments, and are either probabilistically related to poor conduct or relevant to other information provided by candidates:

  • Tolerance related issues (adult acts of physical/ domestic violence, use of racial or ethnic slurs directed at others, etc.)
  • Criminal conduct as an adult (involvement with or income from organized crime activities may represent the primary concern for some agencies).
  • Illegal drug use during recent years, for agencies compelled to inquire in this area.
  • Formal disciplinary actions received from previous employers.

Our Polygraph Examiners

Polygraph Examiners conducting pre-employment polygraph risk assessment services on behalf of the National Testing Network:

  • Graduated from a polygraph school accredited by the American Polygraph Association.
  • Hold current membership in the American Association of Police Polygraphists.
  • Have experience conducting polygraph examinations for a federal, state or municipal law enforcement agency.
  • employ validated polygraph techniques and obey applicable federal and state laws

BACKGROUND INVESTIGATIONS

The Vollmer Institute has developed a comprehensive background investigation service program utilizing regional and local investigators. Our investigations are based on the California POST (Peace Officers Standards and Training) background guidelines. Our network of investigators offers an average of 25 + years of law enforcement investigative and command/executive level experience.

Background investigations are all encompassing but can also be customized in an ‘ala carte” menu to allow cost savings for agencies that might be looking for different levels of investigations, depending on department requirements and candidate positions. We also focus on developing and partnering with state of the art systems to capture candidate data that include online reporting tools for detailed candidate applications, personal history questionnaires, and computerized criminal history reports.

This extensive data foundation and experienced interview and documentation techniques allow us to complete a comprehensive investigation and provide an automated/secured and detailed report that agencies can rely on for final hiring decisions.

The Vollmer Institute’s direct services permit our clients to focus on their core competencies while we provide a competitively priced background investigation to ensure greater efficiency and quality hires. Our ability to streamline investigations, scale your departments’ requirements and ensure client and candidate satisfaction are our ultimate goals.
