Corona Police Department Implements Innovative eSOPH Background Investigation Software by Miller Mendel

Corona, CA – The Corona Police Department recently joined the long list of more than 60 public safety agencies around the country that have implemented 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 60,000 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 Corona Police Department expects to process approximately 100 pre-employment background investigations over a 12-month period using the time and resource saving eSOPH program. The eSOPH transition project was led by Corona Police Department Sergeant Ryan Brett.

In addition to taking advantage of eSOPH’s industry-leading standard functionality, the Corona Police Department is also utilizing the optional, integrated smart fax service. eSOPH’s fax service automatically reads and then routes documents received via fax from other law enforcement agencies to the correct applicant file, attaches the received documents to the correct reference within the applicant file, and notifies the investigator. Background Investigators no longer have to manually scan and upload faxes received in hard copy.

eSOPH has created hiring efficiencies for public safety agencies in the western United States, including California, Oregon, Nevada, Washington, Idaho, Utah, Colorado and Arizona. Agencies in Missouri, Louisiana, Georgia, Maryland, Washington, D.C., and beyond have also implemented eSOPH.
