We queried our CAD dispatch data warehouse for dispatched calls for service with averaged times for both July 2019 and July 2020 covering our north precincts 2 and 5. We ask you review the uploaded records and let us know if this meets your needs for the first prong of your request for average response times. We have waived the electronic upload fee for this first installment. We ask you respond by November 30, 2020. We anticipate providing a second installment on DCFS reports covering our southwest and southeast precincts on or before December 11, 2020, and will notify you prior of any fees. If we are able to provide the records sooner, we will certainly do so. Conversely we will notify you of any delays.

Hello Gregg,

Thank you providing this first installment and for waiving the electronic upload fee. We will greatly appreciate the data for the additional precincts when they become available.

If possible, is there any way for the data to be bundled into a spreadsheet or is that too burdensome? Please let me know.

Sincerely,
Colin Gerber
