My name is Anjolie Harland, and I will be providing technical and analytical support as the office accomplishes their mission and goals assisting law enforcement agencies around the state in the effective recruitment, hiring and retention of law enforcement officers in Ohio.
I earned my bachelor's in Criminology from The Ohio State University and my master's in Criminal Justice from Tiffin University. Currently, I am a Research Specialist with the Office of Criminal Justice Services, Policy and Research section. I've served in this capacity since 2013. I provide technical assistance and review for programs funded through the Edward Byrne Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) and for the Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT) grant program with a focus on adult and juvenile corrections, community corrections, specialized dockets and substance abuse. My research interests include use of force and arrest-related deaths, substance abuse and treatment, and corrections/community corrections. I also develop online interactive data dashboards and various crime reports utilizing data from the Ohio Incident-Based Reporting System and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
I look forward to working with this office in meeting the needs of both the community and law enforcement agencies around the state.
