In 2015 C3A became a preferred provider of the EyeDetect technology for the US Government. EyeDetect is a new credibility assessment technology developed by scientists from the University of Utah. It is an automated system that identifies individuals who are hiding behaviors that do not meet an organization’s standards. EyeDetect is a rapid non-contact screening system based on eye behavior during a non-invasive 30-40 minute test. With research showing an accuracy of 85%, EyeDetect can benefit agencies looking to improve personnel screening while controlling costs. EyeDetect can be used to pre-screen applicants to maximize the throughput of polygraph programs.
EyeDetect can be part of an agency’s continuous evaluation program to uncover compromises to National Security, or other security misconduct, and to create a targeted approach to polygraph reinvestigations. For organizations that have no polygraph program, EyeDetect can help leaders avoid less reliable candidates. EyeDetect empowers organizations to conduct applicant and employee evaluations efficiently and in a non-invasive manner. Organizational leaders can better manage risk and ensure workplace integrity while keeping costs low and morale high. EyeDetect can address problem sets that may be too large or too expensive to use the polygraph as the first technology. Examples could include mass screening of applicants seeking employment as law enforcement officers to detect illegal drug use or criminal activity, fraudulent visa applications, more frequent evaluations of at-risk offenders, validation of refugee claims, or winnowing a large group of suspects down to a manageable number.
Because the EyeDetect system is automated, proctor training to administer testing is short (1-2 days) and inexpensive. This allows the EyeDetect technology to be placed directly into the hands of end-users such as sex offender treatment providers, parole and probation officers, police candidate recruiters, prison officials, and others charged with protecting the public welfare. EyeDetect testing is straightforward for both the examinee and the tester. For a demonstration, click on the YouTube video at the bottom of the page.
C3A has partnered with Converus Inc. to provide this valid and reliable technology for deception detection to law enforcement, governmental agencies, and treatment providers of criminal offenders. EyeDetect is accurate, cost-effective, efficient, secure, and non-invasive. You can request more information through our Contact Us page.
