The Virginia Polygraph Association consists of polygraph examiners who represent law enforcement, government, and private sectors, with objectives to advance the use of polygraph, promote research into instrumentation and technique, and to improve the qualifications of examiners through subscribing to high standards of professional and ethical conduct, education and achievement.
We offer comprehensive continuing educational programs, referrals, and newsletters. The Officers and Board of Directors strive to unify polygraph examiners throughout the state, and to promote the diffusion of polygraph technology through meetings, professional contacts, reports, and discussions, and to further urge the membership's active participation in civic and community affairs where the polygraph is concerned.
There are polygraph licensing requirements in the state of Virginia. If you are currently using polygraph services, or need general information about polygraphs, we urge you to contact and employ one of our members who subscribe to the professional and ethical standards as set forth by the VPA. Many of our members are also members of other national organizations.
