Polygraph takes on child abuse

On Saturday 23rd February, a number of KwaZulu-Natal based polygraph examiners attended advanced training in administering examinations for exposing and reducing the incidences of abuse of children. This social development programme initiated by the South African Professional Polygraph Association (SAPPA), called “Protecting our Children”, is being implemented by a number of accredited SAPPA members on a Pro bono basis. The aim of this programme is to address the causes rather than the symptoms of child abuse.

SAPPA believes that “the protection of children is not only an individual responsibility but should be regarded as a social obligation.” It was with this in mind that the Protecting our Children programme was conceived. The programme will be run in child and youth care centres where all individuals involved in child and youth care centres will undergo polygraph examinations. Three categories of polygraph examination will be administered: Initial screenings where those who care for children are screened as a first step to detect abusers before they can inflict harm on their victims; periodic examinations to ensure the continuation of upholding the best interests of the children; and specific based incidents to assist with the investigations of disclosed abuse.

SAPPA would like to thank Investipol for their assistance and the Bluff Eco Park for their contribution to the programme by assisting with a venue for the training. Further information and a list of participating polygraph examiners can be found at www.polygraph.org.za or the KZN co-ordinator, Shaun McGuone from Investipol can be contacted on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
