The force's non-emergency hotline 901 received 379,122 calls during the same period.

Meanwhile, the average time for police patrols to reach emergency scenes was only 4.34 minutes where the targeted response time was eight minutes.

Similarly, the average time for police patrols to reach non-emergency scenes was 12.32 minutes during the same period where the targeted response time was 30 minutes.
