Richard Ormrod, Ph.D., Research Professor
Richard K. Ormrod is a Research Professor at the Crimes against Children Research Center (CCRC) at the University of New Hampshire. At CCRC, he has been primarily involved in investigating patterns and dynamics of juvenile crime victimizations, exploring crime data residing in a number of important sources such as the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), the Uniform Crime Report (UCR) and the Supplementary Homicide Reports (SHR). He has been particularly active in exploring juvenile victimizations documented in the emerging the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS), a relatively new and expanding data source detailing a large number of crime incidents for a large number of law enforcement agencies. He also works with data sets generated by projects within the center itself.
Professor Ormrod holds an undergraduate and masters degree from Arizona State University and a doctorate from the Pennsylvania State University. In addition to his present position at CCRC, he is Professor Emeritus at the University of Northern Colorado and a former chair of its Geography Department. Dr. Ormrod’s work with Dr. David Finkelhor, Professor of Sociology at UNH and director of the CCRC, continues a professional history of fruitful research collaboration with social scientists in a variety of fields.
