Milwaukie Police Department Joins Several Other Oregon Agencies in Implementation of Miller Mendel’s eSOPH Background Investigation Software

Milwaukie, OR.   The Milwaukie Police Department recently joined the long list of public safety agencies around the country, including several agencies in Oregon, 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 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 Milwaukie Police Department expects to process at least 10 pre-employment background investigations over a 12-month period using the time and resource saving eSOPH program. The eSOPH transition project was led by Investigator Stan Grubbs.

eSOPH has created hiring efficiencies for public safety agencies across the western United States. Other agencies in Oregon using eSOPH include the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, the Oregon Department of Corrections, and the Scappoose Police Department.
