Guardian’s award-winning technology was designed specifically for your background unit, providing unparalleled automation, convenience, consistency, and speed.
A SIMPLE 3-STEP PROCESS

- INVESTIGATION CENTER: CONDUCT INVESTIGATION
Conduct an in-depth investigation using tools to automate and manage investigation assets.
- Simplify repetitive tasks

Integrated “On-Demand” Options
Additional tools for comprehensive screening conveniently integrated with the Guardian Platform.
- SOCIAL MEDIA SCREEN
Initiate a social media check/report at any time during the investigation. This incurs a separate charge from the actual investigation – you are only billed for the social media checks you actually conduct.
- CREDIT CHECK
Utilize the convenience of running your applicant credit checks from directly within Guardian. You’ll only be charged a fee for those credit checks you ran at the end of the month.
Working hand-in-hand with experienced background investigators across the nation, our software solution removes the administrative burden of the investigation, allowing background investigators to focus on their applicant’s suitability to represent their department.
