What is NPEA?
The Northwest Polygraph Examiners Association was organized in 1962 under another name to address polygraph legislation proposed in the State of Washington. In the fall of 1967, facing dwindling membership, five remaining members met in Yakima. They changed the name from Washington State Polygraph Association to Northwest Polygraph Examiners Association (NPEA), and then sent invitations to examiners in Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Alaska, Nevada, and western Canada.
