Bellevue Police Implements eSOPH For Faster Background Investigation Turnaround And Additional Tools

Bellevue, WA.   The Bellevue Police Department recently joined the King County Sheriff’s Office and many other Washington public safety agencies in implementing Miller Mendel’s eSOPH, the #1 pre-employment background investigation software.

eSOPH, which stands for electronic Statement of Personal History, has been used by city, county and state police agencies to conduct over 40,000 pre-employment public safety background investigations. It is specifically designed for the public safety pre-employment background investigation process, with public safety agencies using the system estimating a time savings ranging from 30 percent to 60 percent per investigation, and a significant reduction in the use of costly administrative resources such as paper, ink, postage and filing space.

The Bellevue Police Department expects to process approximately 150 pre-employment background investigations over a 12-month period using the time and resource saving eSOPH program.
