Over the past 30 plus years that Trindel has been in operation we have compiled a number of additional resources that are a benefit to our members. With your member login you will find lists of contractors that have been tested and meet the Trindel standards. These service contacts provide group rates for training, investigating , human resource specialists and more. You will also find links to resources from private resources to public regulatory agencies. And most recently we have started a library of legal opinions on issues that our members have encountered providing their public services.
