Six New Oregon Public Safety Agencies Transition to Miller Mendel’s eSOPH Background Investigation Software

Seattle, Washington – February 23, 2023: Six Oregon public safety agencies recently made the decision to transition to the innovative eSOPH background investigation system by Miller Mendel, Inc. The Gresham Police Department, Tigard Police Department, Polk County Sheriff’s Office, City of Grants Pass, West Linn Police Department, and Lake Oswego Police Department join other Oregon agencies and over 175 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 new agencies join other Oregon agencies already using the eSOPH system, including the Oregon Department of Corrections, Oregon Department of Justice, Forest Grove Police Department, Bend Police Department, and Clatsop County Sheriff’s Office. By implementing eSOPH, these agencies are now connected to all other agencies on the network in Oregon and throughout the nation.
