Panama Polygraphs

Panama Polygraphs director, Brett Mikkelson, began his carreer as an Interrogator for the US Army in 1988. After 6 years in service, he left in 1994 and began working as a Private Investigator for over 10 years. With constant difficulties in finding a polygraph examiner that would give accurate results, he decided to study psychophysiology and began conducting polygraphs for his own consumption supporting his company's investigation efforts.

In 2004, Mr Mikkelson travelled to San Diego, California to begin his studies in one of the most complete and demanding polygraph schools in the world. Directed by the world's number one living pioneer in the field of polygraphs Mr Cleve Backster, the school is known as the "Backster School of Lie Detection"; Mr Mikkelson graduated at the top of his class. Cleve Backster is considered the highest authority on polygraph techniques and was the person who opened the CIA's first polygraph office in the early 1970's. Also, the system used today to objectively qualify the subject of a polygraph exam was created and perfected by Mr Backster himself.
