Santa Ana Police Department Implements eSOPH Background Investigation Software System Developed Specifically for Public Safety Agencies

Santa Ana, CA – The Santa Ana Police Department signed a 12-month license agreement to use 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 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.

The Santa Ana Police Department expects to process approximately 380 pre-employment background investigations over the license period using the time and resource saving eSOPH program. The eSOPH transition project was led by Investigator Sarah Park with the Santa Ana Police Department.

eSOPH has created hiring efficiencies for public safety agencies in the western United States, including California, Washington, Oregon and Colorado.
