Respond to Detroit 911 calls within 30 minutes or less

This petition had 93 supporters

We're asking for Mayor Mike Duggan and the Detroit Police Department to set a goal of responding to 100% of 911 calls within 30 minutes. Here's why:

  • Residents in Brightmoor report routine waits of several hours to get police response, even in urgent situations.
  • Recent news reports have documented that Detroit Police sometimes don't even respond in a timely way to priority 1 911 calls from "Green Light" locations.
  • Home burglaries, car thefts, and violent crimes can often be prevented by faster response time.

As CEO of Detroit Medical Center, Mike Duggan instituted an emergency room policy that guaranteed patients would be seen by a doctor within 29 minutes. The guarantee gave patients peace of mind that their crisis would not be ignored at DMC.

Unfortunately, Detroit residents (and criminals) know that Detroit Police routinely do not respond or respond late to 911 calls. Residents don't feel safe, and criminals feel invincible. 

We're asking Mayor Duggan to prioritize public safety in the city in a tangible way.
