In 2007, NITV posted on their website a 58 page “study” that NITV claimed was done by the DoD: Department of Defense. That word “study” was later changed to the word “survey”. The “survey” is supposed to be of some law enforcement cvsa examiners and their comments. Reading the “survey”, it was firmly indicating Cvsa and Nitv training are completely accurate for lie detection to solve criminal cases.
FACT! DoD NEVER did that “survey” on Cvsa and/or training at any time. Nitv LIED! It appears the “survey” was made up by Nitv/Humble ONLY to get law enforcement buyers by making them think the DoD did the “survey”. Nitv wanted the buyers to believe the DoD gave their expertise to verify Nitv’s claims of complete accuracy of the Cvsa.
FACT! There is NO contact or location information in that “survey” and NO author given to prove who did the study. There is NO department listed in the DoD who did the “survey”. At one point in the survey, Nitv says almost 90% of Cvsa examiners needed to talk to another Cvsa examiner to make a decision. That PROVES the cvsa, cvsa training and cvsa “recertifications” are not able to give the cvsa examiner the ability to make a accurate decision on their own. That proves Nitv’s Cvsa and training are very poor and unreliable for accurate lie detection if an examiner cannot make a decision on their own. Remember in 2006, on national TV, Humble was asked if there was ANY study that proved Cvsa was accurate. Humble said no. This fake “survey”, released in 2007, was Nitv’s first attempt to make people think Cvsa and Nitv training were completely accurate for lie detection. About five years later, Nitv came up with another scheme to make law enforcement buyers believe Cvsa and training were completely accurate for lie detection. Nitv called that lie the Chapman Study. The Chapman Study is described in detail at another section on this site.
