Tukwila Police Department Implements eSOPH Background Investigation Software By Miller Mendel

Tukwila, WA. The Tukwila Police Department recently joined the King County Sheriff’s Office, the Port of Seattle Police Department, the Bellevue Police Department, the Redmond Police Department and the King County Department of Adult and Juvenile Detention in implementing 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 40,000 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 Tukwila Police Department expects to process at least 25 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. The Vancouver Police Department has also implemented eSOPH.


One of King County’s most diverse cities, Tukwila, Washington is a suburb of Seattle. Home to the Museum of Flight and several Boeing facilities, it’s a large commercial center for the area. “Tukwila” is the Chinook Jargon word for “hazelnut,” which earned this city of more than 20,000 residents its nickname as “Hazelnut City.”

The men and women of the Tukwila Police Department are guided by their mission to “improve the quality of life for all through community partnerships and problem solving to promote safe, secure neighborhoods.” The department is focused on building trust and legitimacy between the department and the citizens it serves. It is comprised of several teams, including the Patrol Division, Marine Unit, Traffic Unit, K-9 Unit, Major Crimes Unit, and Valley SWAT.
