Vernonia Police Department Joins Several Other Oregon Agencies in Implementation of Miller Mendel’s eSOPH Background Investigation Software

Vernonia, OR.   The Vernonia Police Department recently joined the long list of public safety agencies around the country, including several agencies in Oregon, that have implemented 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 45,000 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. 

eSOPH has created hiring efficiencies for public safety agencies in the western United States, including Oregon, California, Nevada, Washington, Idaho, Utah, Colorado and Arizona. Agencies in Missouri, Louisiana, Georgia, Maryland, Washington, D.C., and beyond have also implemented eSOPH.

Other agencies in Oregon using eSOPH include the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, the Oregon Department of Corrections, the Scappoose Police Department, and the Milwaukie Police Department.



Located in the heart of Oregon’s timber country, Vernonia is nestled in the Oregon Coast Range along the Nehalem River. The city prides itself on offering quiet country living in a community with a rich logging history and a welcoming attitude.

They are guided by their mission of “providing quality progressive law enforcement and community building services to the Citizens of Vernonia, its visitors, and everyone in the surrounding area.”
