Santa Barbara, California – June 2, 2022: The Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office recently joined the long list of California public safety agencies that have implemented Miller Mendel’s pre-employment background investigation software, eSOPH.
The department expects to process at least 250 applicants per year using eSOPH. In addition to taking advantage of eSOPH’s industry-leading standard functionality and one-click access to the National Decertification Index, the department will utilize eSOPH’s Smart Fax, Social Media Screening, Credit Report Services and Integrated California POST Module.
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 100,000 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, the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office joins several other California agencies on the system, including the California Highway Patrol, Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office, Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, Santa Ana Police Department, Santa Monica Police Department, and several District Attorney’s offices. By implementing eSOPH, the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office is now connected to all other agencies on the network in California and throughout the nation.
