Perceptive Polygraph is a polygraph testing service owned and operated by Certified Polygraph Examiner Frank Watler. Our office is located in Riverside County, near the junction of the I-15 and 91 freeways. Our polygraph testing is performed according to the standards of the American Polygraph Association, and is objective, thorough, and reasonably priced.  If you have any questions, or are in need of polygraph services, please call us today!  


Forensic Psychophysiology has become greatly improved over the years due to the application of scientific validation, coupled with the application of highly accurate and improved computerized systems and instrumentation. As such, it has become a very valuable tool for both investigative purposes, when used to cover multiple issues, as well as for diagnostic purposes, when used to focus on specific issues. Because of this, it has also been increasingly recognized by various courts for its use in specific legal applications.  


Our Polygraph Examinations are conducted from 90 to 120 minutes, and consist of the following components:


1.     Administrative Issues and Final Payment

2.     A Pre-Test Interview

3.     An Aquaintence Test

4.     The Recording of 3-5 Polygraph Charts

5.     A Post-Test Interview

6.     Final Test Results

7.     A Written report (sent later to the client)


It should be noted that in some instances, usually as a result of a Significant Reaction (test failure) to a question or questions in a Multi-Issue exam, it may be desirous to conduct a Breakout Test.  A Breakout test is scheduled on a later date, and consists of one or more Single-Issue Exams, given to further determine whether or not examinee deception is indicated.


Because of the seriousness of those issues requiring polygraph testing, it is extremely important that an examiner be trained and competent, and use high-caliber equipment, components and instruments. Some States do not require licensing or certification, so it is important for potential clients to check a polygrapher's qualifications.


A qualified polygrapher should be a graduate from an American Polygraph Association (APA) accredited polygraph program.  The APA maintains lists of its members, and of all APA accredited polygraph programs.  A properly certified examiner should also attend continuing education.
