A WSMV4 Investigative analysis of Metro Nashville police response times since 2018 shows it is taking officers longer each year to respond to crimes and emergencies.

Since 2018, the average response times to urgent calls, which include crimes not in progress, has nearly doubled, according to the data.

For example, in 2018, police response times to an urgent call for burglary took thirty minutes on average.

In 2023, it took 56.9 minutes.

The response times to other urgent calls, from domestic violence to rape, were similar.

For urgent calls for rape, it took MNPD 47 minutes to respond in 2018, and 78 minutes on average in 2023, according to the data.

Aaron did point out some success in the category of responding to urgent calls for vehicles involved in a crash where there was damage.

In 2022, it took Metro Nashville police, on average, 65 minutes to respond, and in 2023, that had dropped to 63 minutes.

I don’t believe I need to say much more about this, do I?

  1. how much was tv news involved in “defund the police” hype? and how many cops quit? and now the “news” is gonna bitch about response times..

  2. Of course those are the average response times; we’re not given the standard deviation so we can’t say how wide the spread is, but I’d guess it’s pretty broad – so you could be waiting for help for a lot longer than the average would suggest.

  3. But, Nashville celebrates it diversity, and is a thriving vibrant city where you are seconds away from anything you might want.

    Nope. Not interested in big cities any more. Stay the F away.

    Seriously, criminals are criminals because they are not interested in working hard. If they have to travel to steal from you, you are probably safe. Live on the outskirts at best. The further you are away from the city center, the safer you are.

  4. I’ve always hated police, fire and medical being called “First Responders”. The people on site are the First Responders. Police, fire and medical are SECOND responders.

    Note this does not diminish their contribution in any way, but words have meaning and calling police, fire and medical “First Responders” is one of the great propaganda successes of the left.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
