Thank you La Ronda,

I appreciate your efforts on my request. For the call logs you provided, is there any record of the time an officer arrived at the scene? I see the "Received" date and time but no info on arrival. Without it, I am unable to assess response time. Is it possible to retrieve that information?

Please let me know.

Have a blessed holiday season.

Regard,
Colin Gerber
