  1. What?! 7 separate locations in 27 minutes that’s amazing!!!

    That’s faster than their fastest response time to any 1 call, let alone 7!!!

    How is CSPD supposed to catch these criminals if they rob 7 locations in 27 minutes? Don’t they know that CSPD has a response time of 4+ hours to 1 call? (Yes I know this was an emergent call and that response time is just for all other calls, but I also know that there are far more non-emergent calls for service than there are emergent and they just are understaffed, underpaid and under supported)

    Trim the Bonsai Tree and get more officers back on the streets. Fix the problem City of Colorado Springs.
