B.E.A.R. FORENSICS a history of endurance and trust


Although the history of the polygraph and forensic sciences goes back for decades, it is only in the last century that these terms have become the common language in most advanced societies. When we first started, however, the need existed but there was very little demand for private forensic services. Our endurance has proven us right and nowadays B.E.A.R. FORENSICS is one of the most reliable and famous brands in for example polygraph testing.

The history, from conception to reality:

The history of B.E.A.R. FORENSICS starts with a simple idea, a set of skills that found their “raison d’être” in society. B.E.A.R. stands for Behavioral and Empirical Assessment of Risk. We are “Trust” enablers. We make this possible through scientific and empirical techniques.

Without trust, society cannot function. Trust, however, is not a given and must be under constant scrutiny. Like Ronald Reagan, former President of the United States loved to say “Trust but verify”. Detecting deception is paramount in life, be it in on the personal level, professional situations or in a legal framework.

We understand that certain situations ask for important decisions. We also know that best diagnosis is based on truthful information. However, not everybody is willing to volunteer truthful facts and that’s where we intervene.

There is a need for professionals in the art of trust/truth to help make appropriate judgments.

B.E.A.R. FORENSICS is a reliable partner enabling decision taking through an array of proven scientific processes that increase trust in information. We apply forensic psychophysiology to help our clients take the right decision.

When it all began?

B.E.A.R. FORENSICSIn 2005 a couple of polygraph examiners came together and branded the B.E.A.R. FORENSICS idea. Ever since new polygraph examiners and experts have joined under the B.E.A.R. FORENSICS umbrella.  We started our activities in Madrid, Spain. We have expanded our geographical reach as well as our skills set, including more forensic services.

In 2005 B.E.A.R. FORENSICS was a pioneer in the field of forensic psychophysiology in Europe. Ever since new players joined the market and we welcome them. We have maintained our initial mission and have contributed significantly to our field. Nowadays, we are one of the best-known brands in our field and have built a presence in various countries.
