Polygraph Examination

As part of the background process, the Background Detective will schedule you for a polygraph examination. You will be tested in 15 different background areas called "Job Dimensions for Police Officers." In addition, you will be asked to determine if you were honest with the background detective, truthful on your application, undetected criminal involvement, traffic history, illicit drug use, illegal gambling habits, and any other pertinent information discovered or revealed during the background investigation, including employment and military history.
