Who We Are

The Maryland Polygraph Association membership comprises of polygraph examiners who represent law enforcement, government, and private sectors. The objectives are to advance the use of polygraph. This is accomplished by promoting the improvement of qualifications for examiners and establishing high ethical conduct, education, and achievement standards.

Membership is open to all who qualify under the American Polygraph Association guidelines, regardless of your state of residence. If you are a professional polygraph examiner, MPA invites you to become a member.

We urge the general public and government agencies to employ members who subscribe to the professional and ethical standards required by the Maryland Polygraph Association. For additional information on polygraph visit the American Polygraph Association web site. Anyone interested in information about the use of polygraph in Maryland are encouraged to contact any of the MPA board members directly.
