The Government does not collect statistics on average police response times for West Yorkshire or the UK.

This Government’s reforms have freed forces from top-down central control and placed more power into the hands of local people. Police and Crime Commissioners set local priorities and it is for local forces to ensure that they are responding promptly to emergency calls.
