Milwaukee Police Department Response Times Slower than ’07

Despite Chief Flynn’s supposed reputation as an innovator:

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.
