Ten California Public Safety Agencies Implement Industry-Leading eSOPH Background Investigation Software

Seattle, Washington – February 16, 2023: Ten California public safety agencies recently made the decision to transition to the innovative eSOPH background investigation system by Miller Mendel, Inc. The California Department of Parks and Recreation, Buena Park Police Department, Kern County Sheriff’s Office, Brea Police Department, Manhattan Beach Police Department, Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office, Fresno County Sheriff’s Office, and Westminster Police Department join other California agencies and over 165 public safety agencies across the nation that have transitioned pre-employment background investigations to the eSOPH system.

In addition to taking advantage of eSOPH’s industry-leading standard functionality and one-click access to the National Decertification Index, many of the agencies will utilize several of eSOPH’s optional features, including social media screening service, credit reporting, and smart-fax capabilities.

eSOPH, which stands for electronic Statement of Personal History, has been used by city, county, and state police agencies across the nation to conduct over 130,000 pre-employment public safety background investigations. Agencies using eSOPH report saving up to 50 percent of their time per background investigation. By transitioning to eSOPH, these 10 new agencies join other California agencies already using the eSOPH system, including the California Highway Patrol, Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office, Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, Santa Ana Police Department, Santa Monica Police Department, and several District Attorney’s offices. By implementing eSOPH, these agencies are now connected to all other agencies on the network in California and throughout the nation.
