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

In CT, from my husbands experience, they examiner told him that "He probably failed...his heart rate was too fast....his breathing was irregular..." etc...all to make him squirm. He passed no problem.

Also, with the CSP process, many people have PASSED the poly, but been DQ'd for answers they gave in the poly.

I hope that helps Timmy.





Jo - THat's why she's an Ex!

I think I'm just embarassed to what I had to admit to in order to pass the test. It's not that I have any criminal history it was just something that came up in my sexual history background. So now, I'm like great I passed the test...but have my chances been decreased about what I was forthcoming with???

As long as you didn't sell your body, buy someone else's body, or sleep with minors (unless you were a minor too)...then you should be ok.

We all have things in our sexual history that we didn't, or are embarrsed about. Hell I know I have mine!....but in the grand scheme of things, it's not too bad. I know a trooper who seems to cheat on every female he's ever been with and well...look where he is now.

Thanks for the reply....I'll keep you updated...we are down to 10 candidates for 4 positions...
Those odds are great Timmy, please keep me updated! And good luck to you!
Ok...it's 4:15 and I just got home from the poly. It wasn't too bad. Pretty much what I expected. I just hate the waiting now...also, I've never felt like such a criminal (or bad person) in all my life.

Thankfully, I know I'm not as bad as some. I just hope the damn thing doesn't say I was lying...because I wasn't! :roll:
I have never taken a polygraph, what kind of questions do they ask you that make you feel like a criminal or bad person?
It's not so much the questions...but they ask you everything about your background, drug use, alcohol use, unusual sexual activity, credit history, medical history, employment history....everything.

It's just sitting there, all strapped in, knowing that they're monitoring your breathing, pulse, bloodpressure...It's all those things combined and then being asked questions....you feel horrible.

My examiner was like "I was there too, this isn't a fun step."....
Hey there,
I have taken Poly's in the past and i've done just fine, but in the past year my credit has gone downhill. It doesn't have anything to do with me neglecting to pay bills, it was because i had a roomate who wouldn't give me money for the bills on time, i ended up going in the hole to get them payed and now im still paying for it. Is that something that is going to screw me??
Shorty - They give you a chance to explain yourself, so you may be ok...but it's not up to the poly examiner...it's up to selections. All the examiner is going to be able to tell them, is if you pass or failed. I hope that helps.

can the information you admit in the poly (in order to pass to poly) be used against you further along in the process
Absolutely, thats the main purpose of the polygraph to obtain truths which may be omitted in an oral interview.
Shorty - How was your poly?
I found out I passed my polygraph and am moving on to the background! One step closer to the 117th Trooper Trainee Academy! :DB: :GNANA: :BNANA:
