PSCOT Testing

Polygraph testing is used in post conviction monitoring of probationers and parolees – particularly sex offenders – who have been released into the community. Polygraph testing is used as part of a comprehensive approach in which the probation/parole officer, therapist, polygraph examiner, and others work together toward risk assessment, treatment planning and monitoring of the sex offender. 
 
In the treatment role, the polygraph examiner tests the offender regarding their personal history relevant to their sexual offending to break through denial which is believed to be a barrier to effective treatment. Polygraph testing has been shown to be effective in this regard. Regular polygraph testing monitors the sex offender to determine whether the offender is potentially re-offending or engaging in conduct inconsistent with his or her conditions of release.
