North Yorkshire Police Response Times Revealed

The latest police response time data for the county shows how quickly officers respond to call outs in North Yorkshire.

North Yorkshire Police say it takes around 12 minutes for officers to respond to urgent incidents in rural parts of North Yorkshire.

Mark Pannone is North Yorkshire's Assistant Chief Constable, he says the response times are will within the targets set for responding to what are called "immediate grade incidents".

The latest figures from the force show that:

"Response times for Immediate grade incidents average 12 minutes 00 seconds in rural locations and 8 minutes 06 seconds in urban areas from the point an officer is dispatched to arriving at the incident, with a lead in time of 6 minutes 56 seconds from call to dispatch.

Overall times (call to at scene) in this time period are slightly higher than the 2 year average in urban areas by 28 seconds and higher than the 2 year average in rural areas by 1 minute 3 seconds.

Priority grade incidents response times average 21 minutes 57 seconds, although there may be a delay between call and dispatch to priority incidents based on resource availability."

Assistant Chief Constable Mark Pannone says less urgent 'priority grade' incidents are also attended within their target time frames.
