Law Enforcement Testing

Pre-Employment Testing

Bendkisen & Ball Polygraph has been servicing the Western Washington area for 36 years administering pre-employment polygraph tests for law enforcement agencies.

Our clients have included the Snohomish County Department of Corrections, the Snohomish County Juvenile Court, the King County Department of Adult and Juvenile Corrections, King County Juvenile Services, the Edmonds Police Department, the Mountlake Terrace Police Department, the Lake Forest Park Police Department, the Arlington Police Department, the Everett Police Department, the Mercer Island Police Department, the Lake Stevens Police Department, the Snohomish Police Depatment, the Brier Police Department, the Washington State Department of Corrections, the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, Child Protective Services, the Pacific County Sheriff's Department, the Mukilteo Police Department, and many others.

We have designed a law enforcement pre-employment polygraph booklet that has become the standard in the State of Washington. Our basic booklet meets all current requirements of the federal Americans with Disability Act. It contains approximately 250 questions to help you judge a candidate's suitability to become a police officer. Specific areas of concern are general background, driving record, criminal history, financial history, military history, drug use history, employment history, undetected crimes, and sexual history. Starting with this basic booklet, you are allowed to make any deletions or additions to "tailor make" the booklet to fit your particular departments needs.

Contact us and we will send you a copy of the booklet for your review.

Criminal Specific Testing

Bendiksen & Ball Polygraph is here to assist you should you decide to use outside contract services to perform your criminal polygraph testing. We will provide specific law enforcement references upon your request.

All of our examiners are American Polygraph Association and Northwest Polygraph Examiner’s Association members. All of our examiners have a background in law enforcement. Chris Bendiksen is also a member of the American Association of Police Polygraphists. The continuing education requirements for membership in these organizations include specific training in interviewing and interrogation.

We are available in the evenings, weekends, and holidays, as well as during normal business hours. With our state-of-the-art computerized polygraph equipment, we can perform polygraph testing at our offices, your facilities, in a jail, or in the field. Our offices are located in Lynnwood, Washington, and provide the latest in polygraph equipment and comfort. We also have recording equipment to video tape examinations at your request.
