PUEBLO — The Pueblo Police Department says emergency response times are improving.

A report just released compares statistics from 2017 to 2018 and shows, on average, there are improvements across the board from high priority calls to low priority calls. Times cut range anywhere from a few seconds to 15 minutes, depending on the call.

Police Chief Troy Davenport says he believes these improvements are just the beginning, “I think we will continue to see things move in a good direction, because most of what you are seeing here doesn’t account for the public safety sales tax officers that were put on as a result of 2B.”

Chief Davenport says one of his goals for response times in the future is to average 10 minutes or less for priority one calls, which are those life or death emergencies.
