Why should you choose SentryLink?
  • Our price includes access to a national database of criminal records. Most of our competitors charge $19.95 for access to a single state only -- read the fine print.
  • Reports are available in professional, tamper-resistant Adobe PDF format. Easy to print and send. E-mail copies, online archiving, and receipts for expense purposes are included free.
  • We offer the fastest ordering process, especially if you need to run several background checks at once.
  • Our criminal background checks are FCRA compliant for employment screening and tenant screening, including a consumer dispute mechanism. Many sites have misleading claims regarding FCRA compliance, creating serious legal risks for employers who use them.
  • For employment screening, we mail the initial consumer notification letter at no additional cost to you. (Please note this is not a substitute for your pre-adverse notification requirements. For more information see frequently asked questions about our background checks or consult with your legal counsel.)
  • We are a proud member of the National Association of Professional Background Screeners.
