Seattle, Washington – January 20, 2023: Three Texas public safety agencies recently made the decision to transition to the innovative eSOPH background investigation system by Miller Mendel, Inc. The College Station Police Department, Denton Police Department, and the Denton County Sheriff’s Office join other Texas agencies and over 165 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, all three agencies will utilize several of the 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 three new agencies join other Texas agencies already using the eSOPH system, including the Rockwall Police Department and Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office. With the implementation of eSOPH, they will now be networked on applicant background investigations with Texas state agencies and other agencies using the eSOPH system nationwide.
