The Illinois State Police recently acquired the CVSA III and hosted a CEC at their agency. Formerly a ‘polygraph only’ agency, some Special Agents with the Illinois State Police asked certified CVSA examiners at local departments to conduct CVSA examinations when their polygraph examiners were unavailable. ISP Agents were impressed with the results and recently asked Lt. Kevin Reichert with the Intelligence Unit of the Illinois Dept. of Corrections to give their staff a briefing. Following the briefing the decision was made to purchase several CVSAs.
Update: With the tremendous success of the CVSA at the Illinois State Police, they have purchased 2 additional CVSA’s and scheduled hosting another Certified Examiners Course to train additional investigators as examiners.
