Dolly Mosher

Dolly Mosher is the Coordinator of the Halifax Regional Police Victim Services Unit, and has spent fifteen years as a Domestic Violence Case Coordinator in an integrated role with Halifax Regional Police and the RCMP. She has provided extensive training to both police and service providers on trauma informed approaches to policing, risk assessments, and domestic violence, and has also coordinated high risk domestic cases throughout Nova Scotia due to her extensive knowledge in the field of domestic violence and domestic homicide. Dolly is the co-founder and present Chair of Silent Witness Nova Scotia (SWNS). SWNS has collected extensive data on the fifty-two homicides of women in Nova Scotia by their intimate partners since 1990, and Dolly speaks to this research at various law enforcement and other agencies throughout Nova Scotia. Her work with SWNS has also included coordinating three conferences relating to domestic homicide, sexualized violence and human trafficking.  Dolly is currently undertaking a longitudinal research project that examines the impact on a family after a mother is murdered by a spouse, and her findings will be presented at a workshop at the 2018 Domestic Violence Conference in Halifax.
