Mary Dodge Quoted on Increase in Denver Homicides

Professor Mary Dodge is quoted in the Feb. 15, 2017, Denver Post article “Denver’s homicides hit a 10-year high in 2016 after domestic violence killings spiked.” The number of homicides rose in Denver for the second year in a row in 2016, reaching a 10-year high of 56 people amid a sharp rise in domestic-violence deaths. Denver’s increase in homicides last year reflected a similar rise in other large cities. “Two years is probably too soon to say we have a trend,” said Mary Dodge, a criminology professor at the University of Colorado Denver. “But I would call it concerning to see them go up.”
