Although many precincts saw only slight increases, others had more significant spikes in average response time, including a 42-second increase at the 100th Precinct in Queens, and a 38-second hike at Manhattan's 13th Precinct.
Average citywide response times rose by 4 seconds to 4 minutes and 10 seconds. Response times in Staten Island decreased an average 7 seconds, but its precincts had among the city's slowest response times in the city at over 5 minutes.
Police spokesman Paul Browne acknowledges the slower response times but says they're significantly better than a decade ago.
