Charles Allen Kemp elected as President of the Southern African Polygraph Federation

On 27 October 2018 the Southern African Polygraph Federation Annual General Meeting was hosted at the J’Cups guesthouse situated in Centurion. It was another successful event and a great opportunity to socialise, network, and most importantly to learn. This year included three incredible guest speakers, specialists in their field who took the time to impart some of their specialist knowledge to polygraph examiners. Hannes Bezuidenhout, Riaan Bellingham and Estelle Naude talked about relevant modern day topics including ‘Admissions and Confessions in the Polygraph Environment,’ ‘Legal Implications of the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) in the Polygraph Environment’ as well […]

Professional Polygraph Testing

It is that time of the year again when the holly jolly of Christmas tunes and the smell of marshmallow riddled hot-chocolate collide to spark an irresistible holiday spirit. Despite the vigorous attempts of that last-minute filing clawing for your attention, its efforts are all but futile as its pleas are drowned away by the humming of ‘Tis the season . . . ‘ One thing shines and flickers brighter than even the biggest of the premature decorations filling the halls of shopping malls and the metaphorical social media chat rooms alike, and that is the constant blaring of “Holiday Specials!” and […]

Converus EyeDetect in the News

As a proud South African partner and a distributor of the Converus EyeDetect system, we are very interested to see how the media is responding to what is being called the future of integrity assessment screenings. So far, and admittedly somewhat unsurprisingly, the response has been incredibly positive. Magdalena Petrova; reporter at CNBC decided to visit the offices of Converus EyeDetect to see for herself what all the fuss is about:   Researchers say they’ve created an automated test that can tell if you’re lying by tracking your eyes from CNBC. The Converus EyeDetect system is available nationwide in South […]

Qualified and Accredited

It is no accident that I used the word polygraph professional instead of polygraph examiners in the headline. Polygraph examinations are becoming increasingly popular as an effective tool in investigations and as part of a robust pre-employment screening system. Unfortunately, due to the great success, there is great demand, and where there is great demand, there is cheap imitation products. As Charles L. Yeschke put it in his paper he wrote in 1965; Ethics and the Polygraph Examiner: “Every profession, including law and medicine, has historically gone through a transition period of development similar to that which the detection of deception […]

Converus EyeDetect System

It is with great pleasure and pride that we have launched a new service to our clients with the implementation of the Converus EyeDetect system to be used for large scale pre-employment testing and coninuous screenings. “The polygraph is ideal for crime-specific incidents. But because of cost, invasiveness, training and upkeep, it can’t be used on a large scale. With EyeDetect, those costs can be reduced significantly. It’s non-invasive, quick, and results are immediate. It helps companies hire and keep honest people.” –Former program manager at the U.S. Dept. of State The Converus EyeDetect system is the latest scientific advancement […]

Advanced Training 2017

It was that time of the year again where the PISA Integrity Assessment Centre attended the annual advanced training courses presented by the Southern African Polygraph Federation. This year it was held in Centurion with guest speaker Gil Witte and as always it was an extremely informative event which placed a lot of focus on the latest and greatest techniques and research. A lot of focus was given to the implementation and use of the Directed Lie Screening Test and the very popular UTAH Comparison Question Technique. Boasting solid accuracy ratings and supported by credible scientific research, these techniques are […]

Voice Stress Analysis

Voice Stress Testing

The PISA Integrity Assessment Centre and all of its affiliates do not make use of nor endorse the use of any Voice Stress Analysis of any kind, and for good reason. The vast majority of independent studies have yielded that “it is almost as accurate as flipping a coin.” It is for this reason that professional polygraph associations do not associate themselves with these practices. This includes the Southern African Polygraph Federation and the American Polygraph Association. In this scathing interview Charles Humble confirms the incredible lack of scientific evidence. Unfortunately, despite making incredible promises and showcasing a variety of […]
