New York, NY - 8.4 Minutes is Average NYPD Response Time
New York, NY - Police response times have increased every year since 2007—and it now takes an average of 8.4 minutes for officers to respond to residents calling 911 to report crimes.
That’s 90 seconds longer than it took cops to get to a crime scene in 2007.
In 2008, it took 7.1 minutes for a cop to arrive at a reported crime scene, and that slightly increased to 7.2 minutes in 2009 and 7.3 minutes in 2010.
But the NYPD has defended its fleet-footed team, saying response times have been bloated by slower responses to non-emergencies.
