Question

101. Deputy Micheál Martin asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the number of Garda Síochána stations and the number of gardaí in each station in each of the Dublin metropolitan divisions on 1 November 2010 and on 1 November 2015 in tabular form. [44376/15]

Answer

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): 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 taking into account crime trends and policing priorities so as to ensure that the best possible use is made of these resources.
In 2014, this Government rended the moratorium on Garda recruitment introduced by the last Government in 2009. To date, there have been six intakes of Garda Trainees to the Garda College, giving a total intake of 550. So far, 295 of the new Garda Trainees have attested as members of An Garda Síochána. On attestation, new probationer Gardaí are assigned to stations throughout the country by the Garda Commissioner, where they are assigned to mainstream uniform policing duties. The Deputy will be aware that I announced the opening of a recruitment campaign for new members of An Garda Síochána on 27 November last. This new campaign is necessary to fulfil the Government’s commitment to recruit 600 Gardaí in 2016.
I have been informed by the Garda Commissioner that the number of stations and the number of Gardaí assigned to those stations in the Dublin Metropolitan Region (DMR) on the 31 October 2010, and on 31 October 2015 the latest date for which figures are readily available, is as set out in the following tables.
