Fact vs Fiction in Crime Trends

News reports suggest that crime rates are rising and that we are at greater risk today than we were in previous decades. Kris Henning assesses whether these perceived trends are in fact consistent with objective data on criminal offending. Dr. Henning is Professor of Criminology at Portland State University. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of Vermont, leading to his early work counseling prison inmates and conducting forensic risk assessments. His current research focuses on helping criminal justice agencies improve decision-making through implementation of evidence-based practices. He consults regularly with a broad range of criminal justice agencies.
