I got my notification to move onto the CSP's polygraph May 27th! I doubt you all care, but this is HUGE news for me. After the poly I get to wait around again for months at a time....can't wait! :p :p :p :p

Thanks RPD. I've been thinking about everything I've done in my life, just to have my mom tell me that before I was born she and my father used to grow marijuana...because it was "cheaper then buying it".....Now I have that on my mind! haha.

Congrats kttref!!! That is great news. I wish you the best keep us informed...

I only did one polygraph, it was for the VSP, they instructed me that if I could not remember the specific date and time of the incident they were asking about then it didn't happen.... lol

Haha yeah, the few people I've spoken to about poly's all say "If you don't remember it, or if you don't think it happened, it never happened". So I should be ok!! But thanks for the positive note. I'm really excited. I bought a new shirt today for it...I think that's a girl thing, but I had to!

The polygraph was the most stressful part of the process for VSP I think. My poly examiner actually told me that If i didnt remember EXACT dates that we would not be able to continue! It was a rough 3.5 hours but I got through it. I think I was only hooked up to the machine for about 20 minutes. Just don't go in as a nervous wreck and you will do fine.

hey kttref,
I also got my polygraph notice, it took them long enough :lol: good luck to you, Poly's are so stressful you definitly get the feeling that they are interrogating you to death.

Very cool and good luck to you. The few people I've talked to about CSP have already been DQ'd after their poly. Seems that CSP, while down on applicants, is still being tough. I like them having standards. :lol:

Aww, thanks Jake. Hopefully things will go the way I want them to :)

By the way, how are you? Haven't seen you around in awhile! I hope you're feeling 100% better.

kttref,
are you sure that the CSP is looking at the academy starting in Jan 2006? It just seems like a long way away considering this whole process started in august of last year... :?: :roll:

Positive. The Jan. start date is only if they get funding. From the last test, they hired one round of troopers (the ones that graduated on April 13). Those troopers took the test two years before the academy started. So, it will be awhile.

Good luck to both of you and remember a polygraph is just an investigative tool, nothing more. And they're only as good as the operator, there's nothing magical about them. Don't be nervous, its not that bad. I've been thru both the poly and voice stress without any problems, so you folks will be fine!!

I took the poly in VT. It was a very rough 4+hrs of the same questions asked over and over again. Reminded me of my ex when I would return home at 0400 when my shift got out at 2300. She was intent that I :baby13: and :t: and then I :BNANA: but I just kept saying :wm:

Way to go, congrats. I just took a poly in NH...2.5 hours. Has anyone ever had the administrator use reverse psychology on them at the end of the test, therefore forcing to you think of things that you may have not told or not rememberd initially??? Also can the information you admit in the poly (in order to pass to poly) be used against you further along in the process or is the main idea of the test to force to tell the truth regardless of what you say.
