Polygraph Countermeasures Cannot Be Detected From Respiratory Signatures: Government Policy Puts The Innocent At Risk

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Recently the US Government claims to have detected unique respiratory signatures of countermeasure training that are diagnostic of countermeasure use and deception. Those claims have already had impacted policy, practice and the courts. We examined the Government’s claims in mock-crime participants. We found frequent spontaneous occurrences of all but one of the allegedly unique countermeasure signatures. However, those occurrences were not associated with countermeasure attempts. If current government practices are followed, over half of our innocent participants would be misclassified as deceptive countermeasure users. These results raise serious questions about the quality of the Government’s scientific programs on credibility assessment and their policy oversight procedures.
