KANSAS CITY, Mo. — In an emergency, seconds matter. That’s why Kansas City Police Chief Darryl Forté said he’s setting goals to reduce emergency response times.
Forté said the new goal for priority calls is seven minutes, down from 10 minutes. Priority two calls will now have a response time of nine minutes, as opposed to 12. Response times are determined from the time a call is made to 911 to the time officers arrive on the scene.
