Passapolygraph.com victim caught trying countermeasures - Submitted by Chuck Slupski - Atlanta, GA. See Chuck's Polygraph School - American International Institute of Polygraph

Police Polygraph Examiner Mark D. Handler of Georgia wasted no time in proving quality training and attention to detail may surpass experience in identifying countermeasure efforts. In less than 3 months after graduating from the American International Institute of Polygraph in Atlanta, Mark administered a polygraph examination to someone suspected of impersonating a police officer.

Analysis of the three tests included identification of countermeasure indicators. Subsequent posttest interview resulted in the suspect confessing to the crime. The suspect then admitted learning about countermeasures on the Internet and attempting them during the conduct of the exam. The former suspect, now a subject, surrendered police type badges as well as the countermeasure materials purchased on-line at passapolygraph.com.

When asked to comment on Mark Handler’s exposure to countermeasures and success so soon after starting his polygraph career, Chuck Slupski of the American International Institute of Polygraph stated he is not surprised either by the use of countermeasures or Mark’s success in identifying them. The frequency of countermeasure efforts is increasing and will continue to do so as the tested population continues to learn from the Internet. Fortunately polygraph examiners also know how to use the Internet. Fortunately, suspects guilty of criminal activity, and others, are foolish enough to believe everything they read on the Internet. With proper training, examiners will find it easier to identify those deceptive examinees attempting countermeasures.
