When are Polygraphs used?

The Santa Barbara Police Department conducts pre-employment polygraph examinations for most positions at the police department. They are conducted to verify information, qualifications, past criminal or drug history, if any.

The Santa Barbara Police Department also conducts criminal polygraphs on suspects or persons to find out if they committed a particular crime or to exonerate them from suspicion of criminal activity.
