The Center for Homicide Research hosted the 2007 annual meeting of the Homicide Research Working Group (HRWG). The June 2007 meeting brought together some of the most well-respected and innovative professionals in the fields of research, law enforcement, and prevention. This will be the first time that the conference will be held in the Twin Cities.
HRWG is an interdisciplinary group of researchers, educators, law enforcement professionals, and criminologists that address the issues related to lethal and non-lethal violence through homicide research, dataset development, and intervention programs. HRWG members represent some the most well respected law enforcement agencies, organizations and academic institutions in the United States, Canada, Europe and elsewhere.
One of the presentations of the conference was on the Center for Homicide Research’s database containing information and data on over 3,000 GLBT homicides in the United States since 1969. Original research, methodologies and findings from CHR efforts were a key component of the meeting.
The 2007 HRWG Annual Meeting was held on Thursday, June 7 through Sunday, June 10, 2007 in Minneapolis and St. Paul.
