So You Think Calling 911 Is the Answer

Probably not in Detroit. Detroit Police chip away at 911 response times.

They have a lot of room for improvement.

Currently it takes on average, 24 minutes for Detroit PD to respond to an EMERGENCY call. It was 34 minutes a few months back. (That's a 28.5% improvement.) I can't begin to tell you how many bad things can happen in 24 minutes. No word on how long non-emergency

This number is why some citizens in Detroit have stopped calling 911.
