Polygraph (lie-detection)...Getting to the truth of the matter.
Polygraph Examination or more commonly referred to as “Lie Detector Test” is an investigative tool widely used by law enforcement agencies, prosecutor’s offices, and defense attorney’s to assist in the confirmation or elimination of suspects, witness’ and/or victim’s testimony. It is a highly cost effective and reliable process which helps reduce and eliminate wasteful investigative man hours and expensive resources used when searching for the truth during an investigation.
Shawn’s 22 years of experience as a polygraph examiner and 15 years as the chief polygraph examiner of the Michigan State Police (Ret.) has given him a highly specialized position of unique and valuable experience in getting to the truth of the matter. For example, millions of dollars, annually, of tax payer’s, as well as, individual citizen’s monies have been saved by the use of polygraph. Shawn has had a direct impact on the financial, emotional and physical cost that can accompany investigative cases.

By employing polygraph, Shawn has been able to get directly to the truth of the matter which has prevented, reduced or eliminated the use of these costly resources during investigations and court processes.
