107. Deputy Thomas P. Broughan asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if she will provide a detailed breakdown of the most up to date number of Gardaí in each district in the Dublin Metropolitan Area, in each year since 2011. [18002/15]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): As the Deputy will appreciate, the Garda Commissioner is responsible for the distribution of personnel among the Garda Regions, Divisions, and Districts. Garda management keep this distribution under continuing review in the context of crime trends and policing priorities so as to ensure that the best possible use is made of these resources.
I have received the information from the Garda Commissioner on the personnel strength for each Division and District in the Dublin Metropolitan Region for the years ending 31 December 2011-2014 and on 31 March 2015, the latest date for which figures are readily available. I have arranged that this information which is set out in spreadsheets be sent to the Deputy directly.
