We at Polygraph and Assessment Services strive to make each individual feel welcomed during the polygraph test process, and we believe that each client should receive the utmost care, respect, and service, no matter the time, date, or issue because it is YOUR Reputation, Integrity, Truth, and Story that matters.

We simply strive to do our best to provide the most accurate polygraph examinations and to meet the needs and desires of the client and/or referral source in a professional and ethical manner.  Each examination is conducted according to state and federal law and in accordance with best practice standards set forth by the American Polygraph Association.
