    18OCT11 article: New Records Show Slower Police Response Time in Milwaukee

    18OCT11 article in Milwaukee Journal Sentinal:
    New Records Show Slower Police Response Time in Milwaukee
    A Journal Sentinel report in August found average police response time to calls for service was slower last year than before Police Chief Edward Flynn took charge in 2008.

    Department records showed police response lagged in 13 of 15 major call categories last year compared with 2007 figures.

    New records obtained this month by the newspaper show the department's overall response time was 3.5 minutes longer on average during the three full years since Flynn's arrival compared with the three years prior. That's more than 10% longer.
    Instead of focusing on rapid response, the Police Department assigns more squad cars to proactive policing efforts in high-crime areas. Flynn said his strategy has helped reduce the city's crime rate but has acknowledged it can result in a slower response.
    The reason it looks like crime is down is because people don't bother to report crimes.

    That happens in Milwaukee too. Look at the reports from people in the Riverwest incident: http://www.jsonline.com/news/crime/125073199.html
