Blomberg’s research is focused upon identifying ways to more effectively link research knowledge to public policy. This includes examining the relationship between educational achievement among incarcerated youthful offenders and successful community reintegration. The research has shown that those youth who experience disproportionate increases in academic achievement are more likely to return to school following their release and if they remain in school, their likelihood of re-arrest drops significantly. His current research is concerned with elderly financial fraud that is centered upon a national survey of citizens aged 65 or over concerning their fraud-related victimization experiences. The survey findings will be employed to develop evidence-based prevention policies.
