Oregon Liquor Control Commission Becomes Sixth Public Safety Agency in Oregon to Implement Miller Mendel’s Innovative eSOPH Background Investigation Software

Portland, OR.   The Oregon Liquor Control Commission 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 45,000 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 Oregon Liquor Control Commission expects to process at least 2 pre-employment background investigations over a 12-month period using the time and resource saving eSOPH program. 

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



The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) is the agency responsible for regulating the sale and service of alcoholic beverages in Oregon by administering the state’s Liquor Control Act and regulating the production, processing and sale of recreational marijuana in Oregon through the Control, Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana and Industrial Hemp Act. The agency also regulates the production, processing and sale of medical products sold to Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) cardholders in OLCC licensed marijuana retail shops.  
The agency is comprised of four major operational programs; the Distilled Spirits Program, the Recreational Marijuana Program, the Public Safety Program and the Medical Marijuana Program. All four programs are supported by the Administration, Financial Services, and Support Services divisions. Revenue generated from these programs helps support state and local government programs.
