I would like to know the following (please remove any reference to any details which should not be revealed for statutory reasons ):-

What is the average response times for 999 calls outs for each of the following postcodes

  • B91 3PH

CLARIFICATION

My first request with the longer list of postcodes encompasses all types of responses, from ambulance to fire to police.

My second request is specifically for the times for police to arrive in response to an urgent call.

My understanding is that due to the differences in number of vehicles etc, that the overall 999 response times will be different to specifically police response times?

Response times for police relation to 999 calls for the following post codes:

  • B91 3PH
  • B91 3NN
  • B91 3NW
  • B91 3PZ
  • B91 3TY
  • B91 3TS
  • B91 3TT
  • B91 3TU
  • B91 1PF
  • B91 1RQ
  • B91 1PH
  • B92 7RX
  • B92 7RD
  • B92 7RH
  • B92 7RF

May I have the average P1 times for the last 5 years and.

If possible please sub divide into morning, afternoon and evening times.  If not possible, then please provide info without sub dividing
