ROCHESTER, N.Y. — District Attorney Sandra Doorley released a chart on Friday showing an increase in the percentage of people arrested for murder in Rochester who were parolees.

In 2018, 0% of people arrested for murder were on parole at the time. By 2020, that number jumped to 20%. There was a drop in 2021 before an increase this year to nearly 25% of arrests being parolees.

Doorley also announced a partnership with the DA’s office and Measures for Justice, a nonprofit that seeks to improve data collection on crime. She said the partnership will help to make data on crime more accessible.
