RE: Polygraph Testing

I took my polygraph in January and while I'm no expert obviously, my background detective made it very clear that I was expected to tell the truth. I think that LVMPD knows that we all have made mistakes. We've all had our childish transgressions and done stupid things, but as adults, we need to take responsibility for them. How can you expect to be a police officer if your integrity is called into question? It sucks, having to go back over all the things you've done wrong in your youth, but for the job it's better to tell the truth.
