Seattle, Washington – March 14, 2023: Two North Carolina public safety agencies recently made the decision to transition to the innovative eSOPH background investigation system by Miller Mendel, Inc. The Greenville Police Department and Hope Mills Police Department join over 175 public safety agencies across the nation that have transitioned their 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, 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 implementing eSOPH, these agencies are now connected to other agencies on the network in North Carolina and throughout the nation.
