Office of Forensic Research

Jerome Robinson, Director


PSA’S Office of Forensic Research (OFR) conducts basic research that leads directly to practical enhancements in drug testing, improve strategies in surveillance monitoring, develop partnerships with the research community, and introduce cutting edge technologies that improve efficiency and reduce cost. OFR collects and analyses statistical data on subjects related to drug trends and drug use patterns; and distributes findings to the Agency and to the justice community. This often includes examining emerging drug problems, particularly those that require unique analytical approaches not routinely done by PSA’s laboratory.
