West Virginia Office of Research and Strategic Planning
The Office of Research and Strategic Planning (ORSP) is a unit of Justice and Community Services (JCS) that supports the agency's mission to foster public safety by providing high-quality statistical information, training, technical consultation, and research. The ORSP is staffed by a multi-disciplinary team of research specialists with methodological training and expertise in a variety of fields including criminology, statistics, sociology, political science, psychology, and others. Staff in both subunits of the ORSP share a common commitment to producing research that meets the highest standards for methodological rigor and ethical integrity. Their dedication to these values has enabled the ORSP, and JCS, to make substantial contributions to the administration of justice in West Virginia.
