Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Implements Innovative eSOPH Background Investigation Software to Improve Hiring Process

Riverside, CA – The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department joined the ranks of the more than 60 public safety agencies around the country that have implemented Miller Mendel’s eSOPH, the #1 pre-employment background investigation software for public safety agencies.

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.

As the second-largest sheriff’s department in California, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department expects to process approximately 2,300 pre-employment background investigations over a 12-month period using the time- and resource-saving eSOPH program. The eSOPH transition project was led by Deputy Gary Dizon of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

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

Other California agencies using eSOPH include the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, Santa Barbara County Probation, the Santa Ana Police Department, the Huntington Beach Police Department, and many others.



The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department is responsible for ensuring the safety of the residents of California’s fourth-largest county. Covering over 7,300 square miles, the agency’s 3,600 dedicated men and women are committed to serving the citizens of Riverside County with professionalism, integrity, leadership and loyalty.
