Q1-18

Please note that Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4 refer to the first, second, third, and fourth quarters of the Fiscal Year. The City’s Fiscal Year runs from October 1st – September 30th and is denoted by FY.

There were 46 priority calls this quarter.  Three of the priority calls had a response time over 7 minutes.  Two of the calls were originally dropped as non-emergency and later upgraded to an emergency based on the circumstances.  The third call was delayed due to dispatch having difficulty in getting information from the caller whose phone kept disconnecting.  Because 43 out of 46 priority calls were responded to within the 7 minute target, the response rate for the first quarter was 93%. 

Time elapsed between the receipt of a telephone call reporting a Priority Call situation by the telecommunications operator to the arrival of the first Sugar Land Police Department (SLPD) unit on scene.

Results are reported as the percentage of Priority Calls responded to within the target time of 07:00 (mm:ss).

Priority Calls: Air Crash, Officer Emergency, Assault in Progress, Burglary in Progress, Mass Casualty/Industrial Accident, Police Pursuit, Robbery in Progress, and Train Accident.

80% of responses within a target of 07:00 (mm:ss). This target time includes a target dispatch time of 01:00 and a target response time of 06:00.

A rapid police response to the highest priority calls helps ensure public safety and save lives. The response time target of 01:00 dispatch time and 06:00 response time represents a target close to the current level of service provided by the City of Sugar Land Police Department.

OSSI - CAD Record Management System; CAD Record Management System is the record management system utilized by the Sugar Land Police Department to capture Police call data.
