Question

868. Deputy Denise Mitchell asked the Minister for Justice the monetary value of crack cocaine seized by An Garda Síochána in the R District in 2021. [41462/21]

Answer

Minister for Justice (Deputy Heather Humphreys): I am informed by the Garda authorities that there have been a total of 258 drug-related incidents recorded on the Garda PULSE system in the R District in 2021, as of 01:30 on 19 August 2021. This District comprises of Coolock, Malahide and Swords Garda Stations.
I am further informed that information on the types of drugs and associated weights/volume and purity are only available following an analysis by Forensic Science Ireland (FSI) and therefore it is not yet possible, on the basis of data recorded on the Garda PULSE system, to determine the monetary value of crack cocaine seized in R District in 2021.
