Von Jennings - Lead ExaminerNortheast Georgia Polygraph Services was established in January 1998 by Von Jennings, a retired federal government polygraph examiner, who recognized the need for a qualified polygraph examiner to establish a service in the northeastern section of the state. Providing a quality service to clients in this area would allow them the opportunity of not having to drive to metropolitan Atlanta to take a polygraph examination. Von also wanted to provide this service at a fair and reasonable cost so more could afford the service.
