Abstract

The article describes the practice of using the method of special psychophysiological research (SPPR) on the polygraph in the Department of Internal Affairs in its historical context. A comparative analysis is carried out on the statistical representation of risk factors for deviant behavior that were found in employees through SPPR in 2011 and 2020. The work presents the results of the SPPR conducted as part of the professional psychological selection of candidates for service in the Department of Internal Affairs in 2018 – 2020. The identified risk factors are analyzed in the regional context. Taking into account the described results, we substantiate the necessity and relevance of developing methodological recommendations, aimed to clarify certain situations that arise in the process of conducting SPPR while transferring an individual to a higher position in the Department of Internal Af-fairs, with a different functional purpose or set of activities. As part of particularizing the content of the recommendations, we look into the specifics of conducting a pre-test interview with the subject. We show the contents of the test topics on the studied issues and their specification with regards to the functional responsibilities of employees. The methods of conducting an SPPR and the approaches to evaluating the results of the study are described.
