Seriously, as well as getting you the answer ten times faster, it would actually have been LESS EFFORT for you (let alone everyone else) to type it into Google rather than create a new thread on TSR.

Like the saying "get out of Dodge?" Because I'm pretty sure it's in the US.

You do realise that there isn't a Dodge City in the UK......

Btw, you're from Enfield?! I know a few people from there!

I believe there's a rough estate somewhere in north Liverpool that has the nickname 'dodge city' but that's probably not what you are after.

Yes. In Kansas.

Where have you heard it in the context of being in the UK?

"Dodge City is a city in and the county seat of Ford County, Kansas, USA. It was named after Colonel Richard Irving Dodge." That is first two lines of the Wikipedia entry, which was the second result for the Google search 'dodge city'.

The first was a map of the place.

kids these days....

Dodge city in the USA isn't what the OP is asking for I think.

'Dodge City' is often used as a nickname for places where there is a high murder rate/gun crime.

E.g. Miami used to be called 'Dodge City' for a short while in the late 80s/Early 90s I think when the cocaine wars were going on, until the media realised Miami had eclipsed the murder rate of even Detroit (which was thought to be an extremely dangerous place at the time).

This is correct. Dodge city is a nickname for Kansas City because of the amount of gun crime. Recently Norwich has been given the same name and compared to Kansas city. Hope this helps OP.
