Police response time longer
From the NY Post:
More than half the city's 75 precincts saw increased response times to "critical" calls from 2007 to 2008, according to NYPD data.
Although many of the 38 precincts saw only slight increases, others had more significant spikes in average response time, including a 42-second increase at the 100th Precinct in Rockaway, Queens, and a 38-second hike at the 13th Precinct on Manhattan's East Side.
The average citywide response time rose by about four seconds to 4 minutes and 10 seconds. Every borough except Staten Island experienced increases.
