Sarah had been managing a large retail store in Liverpool for several years. The store had recently experienced a significant loss in revenue, and Sarah was concerned that some employees may be stealing from the store. As the store was responsible for selling high-value items, including electronics, clothing, and jewellery, Sarah knew that theft could have a significant impact on the store’s profitability.
Sarah decided to request periodic lie detector tests for all employees, as they were included in their contracts, to identify any employees who may be stealing from the store. She contacted our polygraph services in Liverpool to schedule the examinations.
The Polygraph Examinations
The polygraph examinations took place in our secure Liverpool offices, and the results were available within 24 hours. Several employees had shown signs of deception in their tests, including Emma, who worked in the electronics department.
Emma’s test results indicated that she had been stealing from the store for several months. When confronted with the results, Emma admitted to taking items from the store and selling them online for personal gain. Sarah was devastated to learn that one of her trusted employees had been stealing from the store, but she knew that she had to take action.
The Consequences of Dishonesty
Emma was immediately terminated from her position, and Sarah worked with our examiners to strengthen the store’s security measures to prevent future theft. Thanks to the periodic lie detector tests, Sarah was able to identify and remove the dishonest employee and protect the store’s profitability.
