The South Carolina Polygraph Examiner’s Bond is required by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division for all who wish to be a polygraph examiner in the state. The bond amount is required to be in the amount of $5,000. The bond states that the bondholder, or Principal, shall account of any loss or liability arising during the term of the license.
A polygraph examiner is anyone who purports to be able to detect deception or verify the truth of statements through instrumentations or the use of a mechanical device. All who wish to be in the profession must be licensed first by the state.
To be qualified for a license, one must be at least 21 years old and must be a citizen of the United States. They must establish themselves as a person of honesty and must not have been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor involving moral turpitude.
In addition to the bond, they must also present proof of being a graduate of a baccalaureate degree from a college or university accredited by the American Association of Collegiate Registrars. If they only achieved a high school diploma, they must present five consecutive years of active investigative experience immediately preceding their application.
