Bond Rees

Bond Rees – Unfortunately due to the high costs involved both in time and expenditure there is always someone looking to circumvent this to become a Polygraph Examiner. Fortunately for the public there is the APA and the UKPA who provide a list of all qualified and experienced Examiners, there are over 4800 worldwide who have taken the time to study and learn their craft and can offer accuracy to a client as they use validated equipment and techniques and are regulated. All the UK Police Officers who are working with the Polygraph in the UK are members of the APA. 

We have recently received complaints about an individual passing herself off as a Polygraph Examiner in the UK. Liz Clegg from Bond Rees a private investigation company has no relevant qualifications to be a Polygraph Examiner, she hasn’t attended any formal training nor does she use recognised equipment or techniques which is a concern.

Dear Liz Clegg of Bond Rees

Following many complaints about your practice with Bond Rees we would like to point out the following

  1. You have no formal qualifications to be a polygraph examiner. If this is wrong please do advise.
  2. You haven’t attended any recognised training. Again if this is wrong please do let us know.
  3. You don’t use a recognised and validated polygraph, in fact the device you use is for sale on eBay for a fraction of the cost of the equipment we use and includes an online training program ! As you need qualifications to purchase our equipment.
  4. You don’t use any validated techniques so how can you offer any accuracy figures. You would need training !
  5. You appear to pass every client, our lives would be very easy if we adopted this approach but like your test on 30/2/22 on Mr XXXXXX that was brought to our attention you have caused considerable upset for the family.
  6. Everyone you test is always in the top 5% of the people you have tested, we have some of your reports. Do you know why a qualified examiner doesn’t make claims like this or offer anything other than an NDI, DI or INC result.
  7. You claim to have been an examiner for two years, this is very wrong, would you like the dates your website went live? Why lie about this ?
  8. You claim to formulate the test questions and oversee an analyse the data and footage from every test, are you qualified to do this ?
  9. Why wait 2 days to give someone results, one of our regulations is we give results face to face on the day.

Now let’s look at the test you ran on XXXXX looking at the report we have been given.

  1. We manually score our charts and never rely on computer scoring.
  2. Fear and Stress rating, do you have any validated studies on this, have you read the studies on heart rate and deception and why we don’t score heart rate. Have you made this up? Low fear responses are typically found in individuals with a psychopathic personality disorder, and this is in no way equated with truth-telling {see:}.
  3. I note you don’t use a blood pressure cuff, any test our members ran without this would be invalid.
  4. Your choice of directed lie is poor and based on what the client tells you; studies have shown this to be far from a good approach. Also reporting this admission in written form is a gross violation of professional ethics.
  5. It appears you have scored this as a multi-issue test which if you are using a validated question technique would make the accuracy of this test with a qualified examiner using proper equipment at 75%. There is a reason we use single issue tests, accuracy.
  6. Your questions are extremely poor and would be very hard for a subject to pass, this again shows any lack of formal training.
  7. In your words – I am robust in my application of the principles and methods essential for high quality and accurate polygraph examination and committed to ensuring an ethical and professional service for you that provides you with the most accurate, reliable and valid polygraph test result available in the UK – HOW CAN YOU BE WHEN YOU HAVE NO RECOGNISED QUALIFICATIONS TO PRACTICE ?

Please do choose very carefully whom you work with and make sure the Examiner you work with is a member of the American Polygraph Association and also in the UK the UK Polygraph Association. Liz Clegg, or full name Elizabeth Rose Marie Clegg from Bond Rees will not be able to provide any accuracy and who can you complain to if you feel something has gone wrong ? Always check the examiner you work with is a member of the UK Polygraph Association or the American Polygraph Association, don’t be afraid to ask they will be able to show their credentials.
