Miller Mendel, the leading provider of web-based background investigation management software for public safety agencies, today announced a partnership with Social Intelligence, the premier social media screening firm. With law enforcement agencies continuing their commitment to earning and maintaining public trust, this partnership will provide social media background screening to reduce the likelihood of making potentially problematic hires. Social Intelligence’s innovative solution will help agencies gain additional insight into candidates’ online behavior, reducing the risk of hiring individuals that may hold beliefs that are incompatible with the core values of public safety and law enforcement.
While Miller Mendel has already built a solid reputation for serving the specific hiring needs of public safety agencies, Social Intelligence has spent a decade building an innovative solution to screen candidates’ social media profiles and online presence safely without compromising compliance or candidate privacy.
“We are excited to team up with Miller Mendel, whose experience, knowledge and reputation with public agencies make them an ideal partner,” said Bianca Lager, President, Social Intel. “Our augmented AI platform marries beautifully with the eSOPH experience, providing city, county, state and federal government agencies compliant and actionable social media data which is a vital tool when hiring for positions of public trust.”
“Miller Mendel is determined to provide public safety agencies with the most comprehensive background investigation tools on the market,” said Tyler Miller, CEO, Miller Mendel. “Through this strategic partnership with Social Intelligence, our flagship eSOPH platform delivers an even more robust background check, delivering a deeper, more thorough review of candidates’ background and helping agencies ensure they’re hiring the right people for the job.” The Social Intelligence solution will be available through an integration with Miller Mendel’s signature eSOPH platform. eSOPH, which stands for electronic Statement of Personal History, has been used by city, county and state police agencies to conduct over 60,000 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.
