Kentucky Law Enforcement Council Polygraph Examiners
The Kentucky Law Enforcement Council’s polygraph examiners attended the 3-day Kentucky Polygraph Association (KPA) Annual Training Seminar in March. The meeting took place at the Black Bear Inn & Suites in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Featured instructors were Pam Shaw, Director of the National Polygraph Academy and Board Member of the American Polygraph Association and Matt Mull of the Texas Department of Public Safety. The topics discussed included Pre-employment Testing, Sexual Offender and Sexual Offense Testing and Human Trafficking. In addition to the professional training offered, this conference allows examiners to obtain state mandated CEU’s required to maintain their polygraph licenses. The seminar also coincides with the first quarterly meeting of the Kentucky Polygraph Association (KPA), which was held following Day 2 instruction, during which both Phillip Frazier and Brian Lafferty were voted-in as full members and Shannon Garner for associate membership. This marks the 12th or 13th year the Kentucky Polygraph Association has conducted its annual seminar at the Black Bear (formerly the Clarion Inn & Suites). As is normally the case, the Kentucky Law Enforcement Council’s examiners returned to the Bluegrass State a little wiser and better rested.
