OUR
STORY

Guardian’s President and Founder, Justin Biedinger, joined the Stockton Police Department as a sworn officer after serving 4 years in the US Navy Military intelligence. With 10 years of active service at the Stockton PD under his belt, Justin was forced into medical retirement due to an injury that was incurred in the line of duty.

Justin decided to rejoin the force as a Background Investigator. To Justin's dismay, he learned the investigation process lacked any standardized software, resulting in an inefficient system full of redundancies, labor intensive tasks, and flawed communication methodologies, which were not taking advantage of today‘s technologies.

Justin set out to build a skilled and experienced team made up of law enforcement officers, background investigators, supervisors, software engineers, designers, business developers, and advisors. The entire team is excited and honored to participate in a project that is revolutionizing the way law enforcement agencies vet and hire officers, ensuring the protection of the integrity of the profession.
