A record number of homicide investigations this year is taking its toll on Bend Police detectives. There have been five homicide investigations in 2010 - a record number for the Bend Police Department. Lt. Ben Gregory doesn't have an answer as to why this is the case; but says its definitely unusual: “In years past I have been here for 21 years and I recall never having this many homicides in any given year. I recall years when we didn't have a homicide, but I do know in the last three years, we have one in 09; one in 08 and one in 2007.  This year is exceptional.” Lt. Gregory says the impact of this has meant a lot of extra hours for detectives, but the emotional toll has been perhaps worse for Police and the overall community.
