Unfortunately, not all polygraph examiners are created equal. Mr. Scheepers rises above his peers by aggressively seeking out the standards and principles of the polygraph practice in an attempt to protect and serve the public. He recognizes the position of high trust, and continually seeks to improve his skillset.


To Whom It May Concern:

Chris Scheepers and I have communicated at length about the importance of using validated and scientifically sound polygraph principles and techniques. His words are backed up by his actions. He has sought out the best training in the world, and has executed himself in a noteworthy manner. I admire his vociferous dedication to this noble profession.

Unfortunately, not all polygraph examiners are created equal. Mr. Scheepers rises above his peers by aggressively seeking out the standards and principles of the polygraph practice in an attempt to protect and serve the public.
