Scappoose Police Department Implements Miller Mendel’s eSOPH Background Investigation Software

Scappoose, OR. The Scappoose Police Department recently executed a 12-month license agreement for Miller Mendel’s background investigation software system known as “eSOPH.”

eSOPH, which stands for electronic Statement of Personal History, 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 Scappoose Police Department expects to process at least 10 pre-employment background investigations over a 12-month period using the time and resource saving eSOPH program.

eSOPH has created hiring efficiencies for public safety agencies across the western United States, including the King County (Washington) Sheriff’s Office and the Port of Seattle, and many others.


Named for a nearby stream, Scappoose, Oregon is home to more than 6,500 residents, many of whom commute to Portland for work. A small city of only 2.75 square miles, it prides itself on offering excellent educational, cultural, entertainment and recreational opportunity, as well as an active and connected community.

The Scappoose Police Department is “dedicated to the safety and livability of our community by holding ourselves accountable to the highest standards of excellence and professionalism.”
