Polygraph

A polygraph (popularly referred to as a ‘lie detector’) is an instrument that measures and records several physiological responses such as blood pressure, pulse, respiration, breathing rhythms, body temperature and skin conductivity (sweat gland activity) while the subject is asked and answers a series of questions, on the theory that false answers will produce distinctive measurements. The polygraph measures physiological changes caused by the sympathetic nervous system during questioning. In the UK, the polygraph is typically utilised for relationship issues -including cheating spouses or cheating partners, theft, sexual abuse and confirmation of innocence. It is now regularly used by UK govenment departments, as well as numerous international companies in the area of integrity anf lifestyle checks.

Polygraphs are in some countries have been used as an interrogation tool with criminal suspects, or candidates for sensitive public or private sector employment. The British (UK) government has now initiated Polygraph examinations in its most sensitive areas of investigation and are conducting clinical trials into the ongoing use of Polygraphy. The use and effectiveness of the polygraph historically has been controversial, with its validity subject to criticism. However, critics previously argued that even taking into account high estimates of the polygraph’s accuracy (up to 98% accurate), a significant number of subjects may appear to be lying and would therefore unfairly suffer the consequences of “failing” a polygraph test. However, Research Associates’examiners use only the very latest computerised instruments to accurately evaluate results and are fully conversant with the very most up to date techniques which help secure reliable successful results, once again ensuring precision in all reports.

Our UK lie detector experts are of a standard whereby they have undertaken specialist polygraph training for Post Conviction Sex Offender Testing (PCSOT) on behalf of the British/UK government.

In a UK court case (lawsuit), an involved party may order a psychologist to write an opinion based on polygraph results to substantiate the credibility of its claims. However, the party must bear the expense themselves, and the court weighs the opinion like any other opinion the party has ordered. UK courts themselves do not order or pay for polygraph tests. In most cases, polygraph tests are undertaken voluntarily by a defendant in order to substantiate claims and therefore provide documentary evidence.

Research Associates undertake tests Worldwide. We offer flat fees within the M25 area of London and at other UK locations. Fees may be based on specific travel time and costs for some remote areas and where overseas travel is involved.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: How accurate is the polygraph?

A: Polygraph testing is very accurate, but is not infallible. According to the American Polygraph Association, over 250 studies into the accuracy of polygraph testing have been conducted over the past twenty-five years. In the past, it has been estimated that the accuracy of the results is in the range of 90-95%. More recently research indicates the accuracy of computerized polygraph testing as now being 98%.
Q: Is a ‘polygraph test’ similar to a ‘lie detector test’?

A: Yes. A polygraph instrument is a set of scientific, diagnostic apparatus, often called a ‘lie detector’. It is more accurate to refer to a polygraph instrument as a “truth verifier”.
Q: I am telling the truth but feel nervous about taking a polygraph examination. How does the polygraph establish the difference between my being nervous and reactions as a result of not telling the truth/lying?

A: It is normal for an innocent person to feel nervous taking a polygraph test and the polygraph examiner is always aware of this. Nervous reactions, recorded on polygraphic charts, are not interpreted by the polygrapher as any manifestation of deception. Nervous reactions differ from reactions recorded when a person is lying deliberately.
Q: Before I take a polygraph test, will I know what the specific questions are?

A: Yes. You will be informed of the exact wording of each question that will be asked during the course of your polygraph examination. There are no ‘trick questions’.
Q: How long will a polygraph examination take?

A: Most polygraph examination last between two and three hours. Some will last longer or shorter depending on the nature of the investigation.
Q: Why should a polygraph examination typically last between two and three hours?

A: The examiner typically gives a detailed explanation of the polygraph procedure and explains how the polygraph works. The examiner will also answer any questions that the examinee may have. Subsequent to the test, the examiner will then talk-through and inform the examinee of the results of the polygraph examination.
Q: Are you able to carry out polygraph tests in a foreign language?

A: Our expert examiners are able to carry out polygraph tests in any language, using appropriate linguistic experts.

Polygraph Test

The test normally lasts about 2-3 hours and comprises of three component parts:

Part 1: Our examiners spend between approximately one and two hours discussing the issue with the person to be examined. They then agree the questions to be asked and the actual test procedure is fully explained.

Part 2: This is the actual polygraph testing section, where the examinee is attached to several measurement components. The polygraph examiner typically runs three tests, with a short break in between each test.

Part 3: This is the evaluation of the test sheets and reporting of results, subsequent to a post test interview.

In most cases we are able to provide the results of the test soon after it being completed.

Monitoring Consultancy Service

Research Associates act as consultants in providing only highly tested monitoring software for Windows based PCs, Macs, Android and BlackBerry smartphones, as well as small Windows Networks, and multi-user corporate Networks.

Call to discuss specific requirements, in confidence: 020 7243 1000.

During the late 1990’s, Research Associates noted the initial emergence of the use of monitoring software, both in the UK and worldwide. It soon became evident within the investigation industry, that there were very mixed responses to PC monitoring (and later to mobile and smart-phone monitoring). Some investigators reported clients experiencing no problems with monitoring proving very successful, yet there were also reports of clients experiencing serious compromise, based on numerous negative factors, mostly due to software inadequacy or the programmes being ‘unfriendly’ to use. Research Associates therefore undertook comprehensive long-term research into IT monitoring, with a view to being able to offer superior monitoring service, including wide-ranging and easy to use features. Most importantly solutions needed to be totally undetectable, for legitimate covert use.

Legal Covert Stealth Solutions

Since the late 1990’s, Research Associates have consistently explored and researched the worldwide market-place to ensure our monitoring software complies with the specific needs of both clients as well as the devices which requiring monitoring.

Having meticulously researched worldwide, Research Associates thoroughly tested the complex markets for both PC (Windows) and Mac monitoring software, and more recently, Android and BlackBerry smartphones, as well as small Windows networks and multi-user corporate networks.Research Associates act as trusted consultants and only supply solutions which we guarantee for their ease of use, simple accessibility and security; a fully comprehensive solution.

There are currently many thousands of companies advertising a confusingly wide range of “spy software”, “keystroke” or keylogging” software. Each internet website appears to offer similar high-expectation solutions, yet in reality provide a broad spectrum of results in terms of ease of monitoring and being able to control what is taking place on a nominated device. Our research has taken the time to fully ensure that we only include software in our range that is undetectable (unless professional IT forensics are deployed), our software is genuinely user friendly; easy to install/reinstall (or uninstall); straightforward to monitor in terms of simple access; is reliable, and most importantly, all our software is utterly reliable.
[/av_textblock]
[/av_one_full]

[av_one_full first]
[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]

Wide-Ranging And Easy To Use Features

Our monitoring software generally records the following on PC’c and Macs:

  • Chat/IM Activity
  • Email Activity
  • Keystrokes Typed –Including Passwords
  • MySpace and Facebook
  • Online Searches
  • Program Activity
  • Screen Snapshots
  • Web Sites Visited

Research Associates are aware that many people wanting to use monitoring software solutions are concerned that their children or employees may discover and try to disable the monitoring programs from working. The stealth software we supply will not show up in the program list, and its files will not show up on the hard drive. More importantly, the installed software will not show up in the system tray, and cannot be removed using the ‘Add/Remove’ feature in Windows.

Research Associates’ supplied solutions are all designed to monitor and record every detail of a device including all Internet activity – whether it be in the home, a small office or corporate environment. The software has been specifically developed to automatically take hundreds of snapshots every hour and record a very comprehensive list of PC/Mac and Internet activities (mobile telephone monitoring activity reports may vary according to the specific device). Additionally, for child monitoring, our supplied software allows the user to block access to specific web sites deemed inappropriate and provides alerts via email when specific nominated key words or phrases are detected.

The quality of Research Associates’ monitoring solutions is outstanding, and is backed up with an inclusive, 24/7 technical support (covering a full year). We offer live, English speaking staff on site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This means is that you can call a freephone number, any time of the day or night, including weekends, and speak with a live, friendly and technician. Alternatively, you may chose to email a technical email address and expect a response within a few minutes. The reason we are able to offer this back up is that you will very rarely, if ever need technical back up. Our research found that very few companies are able to offer this back up service, or are very slow to respond. Our experience in this specialised field is now second to none.

There are many other features that are device specific, and we therefore suggest speaking with either Paul Hawkes or Martin Tomlins-Young before deciding to use Research Associates’Monitoring Solutions. Call in confidence: 020 7243 1000.

Legal: Our monitoring software is designed only for legal use; this advice is not merely a legal disclaimer; there are no UK laws specifically relating to monitoring software and therefore UK law relating to its use is unclear. If you have concerns, we suggest prospective clients take independent legal advice regarding its specific intended use, prior to purchasing monitoring software. All fees for monitoring software are charged as consultancy fees and are non-refundable.

Questioned Documents

Reasearch Associates are aware that Forensic Document Examination is viewed as one of the most difficult and taxing areas of forensic science, having a rich and well established history in both British and international courts of law.

The discipline of Forensic Document Examination is extensive, involving the study of a broad range of document to determine authenticity, to expose counterfeits and forgeries and to reveal aspects of a document’s origin and history. Additional to handwriting and signature authentication, our forensic document examiners study alterations, inks utilised, impressions, printing, typewriting, photocopies and the wider products of modern office technology; which are generally areas of expertise beyond “handwriting experts”, who tend to work within more limiting disiplines. Typically, our forensic document examiners act as ‘expert witnesses’ in the legal arena.

Most matters are examined in line with Court administrable protocol, although we also appreciate the requirement for professional Graphologists.

Specialised Covert Surveillance Team Operatives

Research Associates observation team members are made up of males and females operatives of different ages and from varied cultural backgrounds to best blend in. They all share a simple distinction; they are all dedicated surveillance professionals and observation/surveillance is their only professional focus. Research Associates’ surveillance operatives have all been subject to our extensive screening process. We believe it is essential that only specifically trained personnel, rather than general investigators or other third parties, conduct professional surveillance and observation, and teams are hand picked to address specifc tasks, whether for corporate surveillance or a private matter. We also have a policy to ensure that operatives are assigned to only one task in any given day; this ensures that observation tasks are manned only by fresh and fully alert operatives. All observation teams deploy an array of covert surveillance vehicles, including cars, observation vans, motorcycles and licensed taxis, depending on the specific requirements of the task.
“Absolute discretion is an absolute necessity for any successful surveillance or static observation”…

As well as being discreet in their operation, our surveillance operatives also focus to ensure that targeted individuals remain under continuous observation. Where appropriate, photographic stills or video (time and date stamped) are acquired using advanced covert equipment, which backs up and supports contemporaneously recorded notes. Our end reports and logs are of the very highest standard and are generally Court admissible*

How We Report

Research Associates‘ observation/surveillance reports (and logs) are very focused, detailed and professional. As well as reporting to you in person, initially by telephone, our formal report will document the presenting situation and clearly demonstrates we have undertaken an ‘impact assessment’, which shows consideration for the legality of the observation/surveillance task. Our report then documents the summarised results of the observation in the form of a summary. The report then has a separate Observation Log which objectively demonstrates the following: Date; Time; Place and What has been observed. This section of the Report is typically supported by date and time stamped media evidence, which is gathered covertly, where doing so does not compromise the observation. Our reports are designed to allow the reader to clearly understand both the presenting situation, along with the resulting evidence; whether the reader be a Court in the UK or any other jurisdiction, a family member or any other authorised third party.

Preparation

Research Associates place great emphasis on preparation for an observation task, as this best leads to obtaining the required end-result. We believe this to best accomplished through close client liaison. We work on the premise that a client typically has healthy insight into the subject of enquiry, often based on subtle (and sometimes not so-subtle) changes in behaviour and more confidential intelligence. This information will unquestionably assist with establishing accurate briefing and instructions, which in turn leads us to providing successful results.

Finding Absconding Debtors

Research Associates has been accurately locating the confirmed whereabouts of debtors throughout the UK and worldwide for over thirty years and are now widely regarded as leaders in their field. Research Associates has been tracing missing debtors for some of the world’s largest and well known financial institutions including banks, building societies, mortgage lenders as well as various government departments since being first established in 1977. We now offer the same high degree of service to business and corporate users as well as private individuals.

We pride ourselves on delivering a rapid turnaround; in supplying a fully confirmed address for an absconding debtor, whilst always working within the UK government’s stringent legislation (Article 8 of the Human Rights Act, the Data Protection Act and where relevant the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000). Over the last three decades Research Associates has amassed vast in-house records, databases and legal resources which enable us to supply the addresses of debtors more rapidly and cost effectively than less well established agencies who may rely on non-legal means.

A core principal of Research Associates debtor tracing policy is that at no time during the tracing of the individual do they become aware they are being investigated or know they have been found. This ensures that the subsequent legal process is not frustrated or compromised and that the individual is not given any opportunity to hide assets. A subsequent legally compliant Asset Searching service may also be implemented to effectively locate both liquid and tangible assets.

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]

‘Professional Debtors’

Some individuals who owe money often disappear with the specific intention of avoiding payment, frequently attempting to hide their current whereabouts using false or altered names, not registering for services associated with their residential address, or going to the extent of changing their registered name (privately by deed poll). Research Associates effectively trace people as a matter of routine, even in difficult circumstances where individuals are actively trying to remain hidden.

Asset Location Investigations

Where a debtor is either involved in ongoing court procedures or a crime, our team are able to instigate legally compliant cutting-edge procedures to locate both tangible and liquid assets both in the UK and worldwide.

Legal:

Allow Research Associates’ highly experience private investigators to explain how we will assist in your process. Note: For legal reasons, it is very helpful to formally let us know at the time of initial instruction that we are locating a debtor, as we are then able to make use of very helpful legislative consents, which allow us legal access to otherwise prohibited databases, some of which we may not have the right to use under other circumstances. This ensures the process of locating of a person becomes more straightforward and therefore more cost-effective.
